Access to Frida Kahlo-Inspired Experiences, Discounted Hotel Rates and Dining Perks Delivered Exclusively to Passport Participants
OAK BROOK, IL — Beth Marchetti, Executive Director of the DuPage Convention & Visitors Bureau (DCVB) today announced the launch of the Frida Kahlo 2020 Passport, a curated collection of hotel, dining and experiential offers throughout DuPage to celebrate the historic Frida Kahlo 2020 exhibition opening June 2020.
The Cleve Carney Museum of Art (CCMA) and the McAninch Arts Center (MAC) at the College of DuPage (COD) will host one of the largest private collections of original artwork by Frida Kahlo in a multifaceted exhibition entitled Frida Kahlo 2020. The exhibition will be the most comprehensive presentation of Kahlo’s work displayed in the Chicago area in over 40 years.
“The development of this Passport has been very exciting as it provided us the opportunity to once again connect with our communities. The interest and willingness to support such an exciting exhibit for DuPage is incredible,” said Marchetti. “It is our hope that those planning a visit to the historic Frida Kahlo 2020 exhibit will explore and experience DuPage beyond the exhibition.”
