Frida Kahlo work

An oil on canvas of Frida Kahlo will be one of many paintings on display at today’s art exhibit.

An interactive Frida Kahlo exhibit featuring 22 artists and their images of the late Mexican artist will be held 6 to 9 p.m. today (May 11) during the Pomona Art Walk at the Latino Art Museum, 281 S. Thomas St. in Pomona.

A live event featuring Karen Guerra as Frida and Miguel Angel Rios will be performed with music and narrative.

The exhibit, consisting of oils, collage, photography, and paintings will remain on display until Friday, May 31.

Ms. Kahlo was born in Mexico in 1907 and died in 1954 at the age of 47. 

She had a tumultuous marriage with acclaimed artist Diego Rivera, suffered ill health, used pain medication, was involved in political activism, and developed a unique art form inspired by Mexican folk culture.

Her work was rediscovered in the late 1970s.
