Yesterday I visited the Heard Museum to see the new Frida Kahlo exhibit of her collection of photos. There were 241 photos exhibited from her collection of over 6,000 that were carefully archived. Many were taken by her father, some were taken by her and others were photos taken by various photographers. They were all locked in a room in the Blue House where she lived most of her life and not revealed to the public until 2007. It was a fascinating exhibit with photos of family and cherished memories to photos that inspired her art and political activism. Photography wasn't allowed in the actual exhibit but it was encourage at the entrance where this larger-than-life Frida was on display.
It was a very wet day in the Phoenix area so it was a perfect day for a museum visit. All that rain didn't stop me from making a quick visit to my favorite sculpture garden at the museum.
