The multifaceted exhibition will transform the newly expanded gallery and extend throughout the McAninch Arts Center through the Lakeside Pavilion with the presentation of more than 100 rare, personal photographic images from the artist’s life, a video presentation, reproductions of Kahlo’s clothing, a family-friendly children's area, poetry garden, public programming and more.

Frida Kahlo (1907 – 1954) is one of the most iconic artists of the 20th century, known for her powerful self-portraits that explored her challenges with her personal identity and disability. Kahlo continues to have relevance today through the universality of the themes in her work.

This exhibition is made possible through the support from the College of DuPage Foundation, the generous spirit of Milly and Alan Peterson, founding community members of College of DuPage and lifetime patrons of the McAninch Arts Center.
