Frida Kahlo: La Flor de la Vida

On December 5th, I made my way to my local Cultural Center for a Frida inspired exhibition.

If you personally know me, you’ll know that I adore Frida.
In case you are not familiar with Frida Kahlo or her work, I urge you look her up.
You will laugh, cry, maybe even get inspired.

Over sixty years after her death, the exhibit pays tribute to the Mexican painter who continues to receive admirers from all over the world.

Even after her death, Frida remains an icon and inspiration to artist.
Not only is her style and art one of a kind, but the life she led was truly extraordinary.

There is so much I want to share about Frida but this post was meant specifically to share the details of this exhibit.

I attended the opening reception which allowed me to meet the artist in person. So many talented people from all ages and every background you can think of.
Everyone was encouraged to dress up that night and to my surprise, there was live music, hors-d’oeuvres, desserts and wine!

I had an amazing time, everything and everyone was so beautiful! Some paintings were even up for sale! I did want one in particular but unfortunately the one I wanted was not for sale.
Definitely one of my favorite nights this year.
