"La Sirena" ("The Mermaid") a Mexican folk art store in New York City filled with arts and crafts from many regions of Mexico, from museum quality pieces to traditional marketplace merchandise in all price ranges.
This blockbuster exhibition will be the first to examine Frida Kahlo's keen appreciation for the beauty and variety of the natural world, as evidenced by her home and garden as well as the complex use of plant imagery in her artwork. Featuring a rare display of more than a dozen original Kahlo paintings and works on paper, this limited six-month engagement will also reimagine the iconic artist's famed garden and studio at the Casa Azul, her lifelong home in Mexico City.
Accompanying events invite visitors to learn about Kahlo's life and enduring cultural influence through music, lectures, Frida al Fresco evenings, Mexican-inspired shopping and dining experiences, and hands-on art activities for kids. For more information, visit nybg.org/Frida.
