Artisphere’s Opening Night of Kahlo Exhibit

Last night the public got its first look at Artisphere’s exclusive exhibit of personal photos from famed Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. Nearly 2,000 people showed up for the opening night.

Dignitaries from Kahlo’s native Mexico, such as Alejandra de la Paz from the Embassy of Mexico and Jefe Delegacional en Coyoacan (similar to a mayor) Raul Flores Garcia, also attended. Coyoacan is a suburb of Mexico City, and a sister city to Arlington.

The exhibit contains 259 of the artist’s personal photographs. Artisphere is the only venue in the United States to display these photographs. The free exhibit will run through March 25.
