Dickinsonians in North Carolina are invited to a special tour of a new exhibition at the North Carolina Museum of Art.
Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Mexican Modernism from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection
9:30 a.m. – Gather for Coffee & Pastries at Sip (located in the West Building)
10:30 a.m. – Guided Tour
Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and Mexican Modernism from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection presents the paintings of two icons of the 20th century. Few artists have captured the public's imagination with the force of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo (1907–54) and her husband, the Mexican painter and muralist Diego Rivera (1886–1957). The myths that surrounded them in their lifetimes arose not only from their significant bodies of work, but also from their friendships (and conflicts) with leading political figures and their passionate, tempestuous personal relationships.
Space is limited. Please register by Wednesday, Nov. 6.
