The de Young Museum in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park launched a new exhibit dedicated to artist Frida Kahlo. 'Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving' last fall after a long delay due to public health orders. The exhibit had been given a run through February 7, 2021, but after another closure in December 2020 and subsequent reopening this past weekend the exhibit has been extended through May 2, 2021. The de Young is operating at a reduced capacity and face coverings are required.

The exhibit focuses on how Kahlo constructed her identity through self-fashioning as well as themes of disability and ethnicity both in her art and in her life.

You'll get an intimate look at her accessories, art, costumes, photographs & more. Much of which come from a treasure trove of the artist's personal items that were unsealed 50 years after her death. Info on tickets can be found here.
