Frida Kahlo: Dreams, Demons, and Devotion (in person and virtual)

March 21 @ 7:00 pm

Featured Image: Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo & Anson Goodyear

Sponsored by the Pennington Public Library, the Hopewell Public Library, the Hopewell Valley Arts Council and the Friends of the Pennington Public Library, Frida Kahlo: Dreams, Demons, and Devotion will be presented by Janet Mandel on Tuesday, March 21, 2023, 7pm in-Person at the Hopewell Theater and via Zoom.

Frida Kahlo’s paintings illustrate the anguish and passion of a fascinating, complicated personal and artistic life. The astonishing works of this Mexican and feminist icon will be looked at through the lens of her ethnicity, disabilities, and political activism, especially emphasizing her engagement with the natural world.
