“I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality.” Frida Kahlo.
Frida Kahlo’s exhibitions conclude with a celebration of the Mexican tradition known for bringing together family and friends to remember loved ones, Día de los Muertos. For two weekends in late October, join in the festivities with a procession of larger-than-life skeletons, butterflies, and La Catrina—the grande dame of this colorful holiday—hand-crafted by Lucrecia Novoa, or stroll the Conservatory Plaza with the stilt dancers of Los Zancudos de Zaachila presented by Laura Anderson Barbata. Dress the part by creating your own mask to wear or having your face painted for the occasion! Artists in residence The Villalobos Brothers close out these weekend fiestas at the Garden with performances on October 31 & November 1.
Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!
“I leave you my portrait so that you will have my presence all the days and nights that I am away from you.” Frida Kahlo.
