Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) is considered one of the most significant artists of the twentieth century. Her body of work, consisting of some 250 paintings and drawings, is at once intensely personal and universal in scope, and relies heavily on the natural world. The exhibition "Frida Kahlo's Garden" transports visitors to Kahlo's garden to experience her world as she did. The exhibition will explore iconic photographs of the artist and her home and garden, in addition to reproductions of several of her paintings. Also included are: information about native Mexican plants that were grown in her garden, a dress from the Mexican state of Oaxaca where Kahlo sourced much of her attire, and examples of folk art collected by Kahlo and her husband, painter Diego Rivera. Additionally, visitors can learn about Mexican culture, including traditional festivities, food and drink, and agricultural practices. This exhibition is made possible by NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities. "Frida Kahlo's Garden" is adapted from the exhibition, "FRIDA KAHLO: ART, GARDEN, LIFE," organized by guest curator Adriana Zavala at The New York Botanical Garden. It was made possible with major funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, Karen Katen Foundation, The LuEsther T. Mertz Charitable Trust, MetLife Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities, New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and Gillian and Robert Steel. It was adapted and toured for NEH on the Road by the Mid-America Arts Alliance. Four Rivers Environmental Education Center is an accessible facility.
