24 Sep 2012 UACCM displays Frida Kahlo paintings
A Teacher’s Discovery Traveling Exhibit featuring the Mexican paintings of Frida Kahlo will be on display through Friday, Sept. 28, at the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton (UACCM).
The exhibit was made possible by a donation to the UACCM Art Department from Dr. Eloise Sherman.
“Dr. Sherman loves the arts and has been a great supporter of our program over the years,” said UACCM Art Instructor Tina Lake.
Sarah Lawson’s Spanish language classes, UACCM Coordinator of Multicultural Affairs Mary Newsome and Lake partnered to host the exhibit on campus for Hispanic Heritage Month. The exhibit will be displayed in the main lobby of the E. Allen Gordon Library and is open for the public to view 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday.
Frida was married to Mexican muralist Diego Rivera but won acclaim for her own paintings, including many self-portraits. The students and staff will enjoy the beautiful reproductions, including life size photos of Frida. The exhibit celebrates fine art, women in art and Mexican culture.
