PHOENIX, AZ.- Heard Museum visitors have a rare opportunity to see masterpieces by legendary 20th Century Mexican artists Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera now that the Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera exhibit has opened in Phoenix. This is the only North American stop on a limited world tour that began in October at the Art Gallery of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia.

The 33 works are being exhibited at the Heard Museum in the newly opened Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust Grand Gallery. Shown through Aug. 20, the works are from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection. They include Kahlo’s Self Portrait with Monkeys and Diego on My Mind, and Rivera’s Calla Lily Vendor and Sunflowers. The Gelmans were Mexican-based European émigrés who were friends of Kahlo and Rivera.

“Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera at the Heard will provide our visitors a once-in-a-lifetime chance to experience firsthand some of the most famous and iconic paintings ever created,” said David M. Roche, Heard Museum director and CEO. “This exhibit further allows the museum to explore the intersection of American Indian art with broader mainstream artistic movements such as Surrealism and Modernism.”

In addition to the paintings, more than 70 photographs taken by Edward Weston, Lola Alvarez Bravo and Guillermo Kahlo, Frida Kahlo’s father, among others, offer a look into the artists’ lives and tumultuous relationship. This is the second exhibit in the Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust Grand Gallery, the Heard Museum’s first new gallery in 11 years. The museum is teaming up with local businesses including presenting sponsor, Bank of America and supporting sponsor, PetSmart, Inc.

“We are committed to artistic diversity that helps unite communities by fostering an understanding and appreciation for art that makes Phoenix such a great place to live and work,” said Benito Almanza, Phoenix market president, Bank of America. “We are proud of our collaboration with the Heard Museum and especially pleased to share the Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera exhibition that we hope will educate and inspire.
