My friend Jill and I met at the New York Botanical Garden in the middle of the Bronx.
250 acres of 50 gardens, a forest of 30,000 trees, a river, a tram, many bees, a rainforest, and much to learn.
This blockbuster exhibition is 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 also reimagines the iconic artist’s famed garden and studio at the Casa Azul, her lifelong home in Mexico City.
