    Join us for the opening of Frida Kahlo: Through the Lens of Nickolas Muray, on view at The Rockwell Museum through January 22, 2023. 

    This exhibition of photographs provides an intimate look at Frida Kahlo, Mexico’s most prolific and well-known woman artist, through the lens of her long-time friend and lover, Nickolas Muray.

    Muray’s photographs bring to light Kahlo’s deep interest in her Mexican heritage, her life and the people significant to her with whom she shared a close friendship. Muray photographed Kahlo more than any of his other subjects, and these portraits became integral to the world’s understanding of who Frida Kahlo was as an individual behind her artwork.


    This traveling exhibition has been organized through the Nickolas Muray Archives and is circulated by GuestCurator Traveling Exhibitions located in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

    This exhibition is made possible with support by Corning Incorporated Global Latino Organization.
