People from Chicago will soon have the opportunity to live and work with Frida Kahlo.
“Immersive Frida Kahlo,” a new Chicago attraction, will open in Chicago’s Old Town next week. It will bring the Mexican-born artist’s journey and paintings to life on a grand stage set to music.
The new exhibit was created by the same team that brought “Immersive van Gogh” to Chicago. It will display some of Kahlo’s most famous works on the walls of Lighthouse ArtSpace Chicago at 108 W Germania Pl., beginning February 24.
“Frida Kallo’s artwork is more than beautiful from an aesthetic standpoint. It has become a universal symbol for resilience and perseverance.” The exhibit’s team wrote that Kahlo was brave and honest and transferred her pain and fears onto canvas in a way that resonates with them today.
Tickets starting at $40 are now available.
The organizers of “Immersive Frida Kalo” will require that all visitors wear a mask when touring the exhibit. They will also operate at reduced capacity and social distancing.
