Join us for an exploration of Frida Kahlo’s life and artwork with art historian Mary Meadows. Meadows will contextualize Kahlo’s work within Mexican Art History and discuss how other artists have responded to her art, accompanied by a selection of images on slides. The talk will be 45 minutes to an hour long, with time for questions and answers.
Meadows earned her MA in Art History at Cal State, Fullerton, where she wrote her thesis on the work of Frida Kahlo. She has lived in Denver since the 1980s. In 2012 she completed a book with Georgia Garnsey titled, The Murals of Colorado: Walls that Speak.
