Frida Kahlo Exhibit Coming to College of DuPage
A major exhibition of works by Frida Kahlo will be coming to the McAninch Arts Center at College of DuPage in 2020. This is the largest private collection of the 20th century Mexican artist, and the first time since 1978 that her works will be shown in the Chicagoland area. The 26-piece collection is on loan from the Museo Dolores Olmedo. The college will be hosting a number of events leading up to the exhibition in June 2020 to raise awareness and funds to cover its costs.
