The exhibit will focus on how Kahlo constructed her identity through self-fashioning as well as themes of disability and ethnicity both in her art and in her life.

You'll get an intimate look at her accessories, art, costumes, photographs & more. Much of which come from a treasure trove of the artist's personal items that were unsealed 50 years after her death.
