Virtual Access Day: Frida Kahlo

This event is expired.

Photograph of a close shot of Frida Kahlo's head and shoulders in front of a bright blue wall. Her face is turned slightly to her left as she looks at a small figurine she is holding in her left hand up by her shoulder. She is wearing a bright pink flower on the top of her head and her hair appears to be swept up on the top of her head.

At the time of Frida Kahlo’s death in 1954, a treasure trove of the artist's highly personal items—including jewelry, clothing, and prosthetics—were locked away. 50 years later, these belongings were unsealed and now they’re on view for the first time on the West Coast at the de Young Museum. Discover what these objects reveal about their now iconic owner in the exhibition Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving by joining one or both highlights tours hosted by Access Programs via Zoom. 

10 am: Docent Alfred Escoffier will discuss highlights from the exhibition for a general audience. This virtual “tour” will be captioned.

Register in advance for this meeting. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

11:15 am: Docent Karen Libby will discuss highlights from the exhibition with a presentation designed for people who have low vision or are blind. All are welcome whether or not they have low vision. This virtual “tour” will be captioned.

Register in advance for this meeting. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
