Frida Kahlo: Exciting Exhibit at Tucson Botanical Gardens for Wordless Wednesday

This is a Wordless Wednesday post, but I'm so excited about the show at the Tucson Botanical Gardens that I wanted to RAVE about it. 

Frida Kahlo, is an artist who is best known for the many self-portraits she painted. She was born in Mexico City in 1907, and lived with Diego Rivera, her Mexican Muralist artist husband in La Casa Azul until her death in 1954. Her home is now a museum and pilgrimage site for many who consider the artist an early Mexican feminist.

The exhibit in Tucson is a recreation of the gardens Frida maintained at La Casa Azul. The plants, colors, and forms that were such an important source of inspiration to Kahlo are included in the installation. 

See the pictures now...

Here I am Enjoying the Sun and Surroundings

This Meso-American-inspired replica of a Pyramid built by Diego Rivera,was in the central courtyard of their home. It was a showcase for a diverse collection of cacti and succulents native to the deserts of Mexico and the Southwestern United States.

Lunch at the Cafe Botanica tops off the visit with a Christmas Eve Salad, Veggie Torta, and Bean Taco

If you live near or in Tucson or can come for a visit, this lovely exhibit is sure worthwhile.

How many of you have seen this exhibit or plan to come by before it ends in Oct. 2017?

Please comment below and share the love if you like what you see.

The quote for today is : "I paint self-portraits because I am so often alone, because I am the person I know best." Frida Kahlo
