As many of you know Frida Kahlo, Mexican Modernist Painter is one strong inspiring artist that I have always admired and look up for strength and creative motivation. From the beginning of my career as an Art Historian and Writer she has been my by side and her life and art is a constant reminder to never give up and evolve as a creative individual.
Therefore I am excited to learn of an amazing exhibit of Frida Kahlo and her Photos, taking place at the Museum of Latin American Art in the city of Long Beach 628 Alamitos Ave, Long Beach, CA 90802
(562) 437-1689 this weekend March 15, 2014. The exhibit will run through June 8, 2014. MOLAA will be celebrating FRIDAMANIA WOMEN’S DAY FESTIVAL Sunday from 11:00am-5:00pm. Free admission. I can assure you that it will be a delightful event for the entire family, especially for all you Frida Kahlo lovers! My little Frida Citlali Tobon, my beautiful daughter who is also a great fan of Frida Kahlo and her Art will also be there dressed the part. See you all there!

About the exhibition
Frida Kahlo, Her Photos presents over 200 images from Frida Kahlo’s personal Casa Azul archive in Mexico City. MOLAA’s featured spring exhibition includes images of Frida, by Frida and for Frida. Represented here are a wide range of photographs that shed light on a more personal side of Frida’s life, from family photographs, both traditional portraits and candid shots at the Casa Azul, to mementos of pain, love, and the artistic, intellectual and political milieu in which she lived. This selection from the Casa Azul trove also includes images by Lola and Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Man Ray, Tina Modotti, and Edward Weston among others.
