The New York Botanical Garden has staged a Frida Kahlo exhibit like no other. Frida Kahlo: Art, Garden, Life
explores the artist’s love of and influences in the natural world, and features a number of her original works as well as photos from her life in Mexico. Those alone would make this worth a visit. But curator Adriana Zavala and the team at NYBG have outdone themselves by recreating the magnificent gardens at Kahlo’s famed home in Mexico City, La Casa Azul
, where she was born and raised, lived with husband Diego Rivero and eventually died. No detail was overlooked — from the pyramid garden sculpture, painted by Rivera, to the very blooms, flora and cacti that surrounded Kahlo all her life. Frida Kahlo: Art, Garden, Life
is on view till November.
