Frida Kahlo: Blood and Gold

May 26, 2017



In collaboration with the Tucson Botanical Gardens exhibit of Frida Kahlo: Art Garden, Life, and the final Frida Al Fresco, ZUZI! Dance celebrates the life of Frida Kahlo Mexican artist, with a concert travelling through Frida Kahlo's richly diverse and controversial life with dance, visual arts, spoken word and live music.    

Frida Fridays have been a permanent part of the Tucson Botanical Gardens' schedule and we're celebrating the last Frida Al Fresco with a fiesta! The Gardens are the center of all things Frida Kahlo and we'll be a part of bringing Frida's Mexico City to life. Food inspired by Frida's own family recipes will be provided by Café Botanica and will be available for purchase on an à la carte basis.

It will be a great time to gather with friends, see the exhibit Frida Kahlo: Art, Garden, Life while relaxing in the Tucson evening enjoying live music and dance.

Frida Kahlo de Rivera (July 6, 1907 – July 13, 1954) Kahlo's life began and ended in Mexico City, in her home known as the Blue House. At the age of six, Frida developed polio.  At the age of 18 she suffered a traumatic trolley car accident that changed the course of her life forever. Her work has been celebrated in Mexico as emblematic of national and indigenous tradition, and by feminists for its uncompromising depiction of the female experience and form.  Her work has also been described by André Breton, principal initiator of the surrealist movement, as "a ribbon around a bomb."
