Colorful flowers, fashions, and decor filled the Heard Museum on Sunday night, April 9, as art lovers gathered for a first look at "Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera," an exhibition that runs from April 11 to September 4. Heard Museum is the sole North American stop for the exhibition's international tour. But it's just the latest of several shows in Arizona to feature Kahlo's work, or photographs of the artist, which have included "Mirror, Mirror: Rare Photographs of Frida Kahlo" at Bentley Gallery and the "Frida Kahlo: Art, Garden, Life" exhibit that continues through May 31, 2017, at Tucson Botanical Garden. Here's a sneak peek at the exhibition, along with highlights from Sunday's celebration. All photos by Lynn Trimble.
