The Cleve Carney Museum of Art (CCMA) and the McAninch Arts Center (MAC) at the College of DuPage (COD) will host "Frida Kahlo: Timeless" June 5-Sept. 6 in Glen Ellyn, Illinois.
Featuring 26 original works on loan from the Museo Dolores Olmedo, it is considered the most comprehensive presentation of Kahlo's work displayed in the Chicago area in more than 40 years.
The exhibition also includes a multimedia timeline with replicas of notable objects from Kahlo's life, including Kahlo's childhood bed and orthotic braces created by Chicago-based artists Daniel Sullivan and Betsy Odom; more than 100 photographic images from the artist's life; a Frida Kahlo-inspired garden designed by Ball Horticultural Company; and a children's area featuring a model replica of Frida's Casa Azul in Coyoacan, Mexico, designed by Wight & Co.
The exhibition and related programming is organized by "Frida Kahlo: Timeless" Executive Director Diana Martinez (director of the MAC) in collaboration with CCMA curator Justin Witte.
