The Fresno Art Museum’s blockbuster show “Frida Kahlo: Through the Lens of Nickolas Muray” closes in just three days. The exhibition, which showcases more than 50 photographs taken of Kahlo by Muray, one of her friends and lovers, closes Sunday, May 1.
The show has been open since January – so you don’t really have any excuse for not having gotten out there to see it yet. But we understand that some folks are procrastinators.
Here’s a links roundup of our prior coverage:
→ Frida Kahlo show coming to Fresno Art Museum: This brief, which ended up receiving more online hits than any arts story of the year, was the first clue that the Frida show was going to be big.
→ Up close and personal with Frida Kahlo at Fresno Art Museum: This is my overview story about the exhibition. It ran on the day it opened.
→ As Frida Kahlo show opens, a reminder of what could have been: This is an interesting little piece about what the bigger arts picture was supposed to be locally: a “Year of Diego Rivera,” including a blockbuster exhibition at Fresno State. The Rivera show fell through, but the Fresno Art Museum went ahead with its Frida plans.
→ With ‘Frida Kahlo,’ a notable face launches good times at museum: In March I wrote an essay about the exhibition and how Kahlo’s distinctive appearance and tumultuous personal history help people connect with her.
