Along with the exhibition, the garden is debuting six Botanical Frida statues.
A San Antonio Botanical Garden exhibition celebrating one of Mexico's most beloved artists makes its debut this weekend.
"Frida Kahlo Oasis" features a 2,100 square foot garden inspired by the garden at Casa Azul, the home artist Frida Kahlo shared with her husband Diego Rivera in Mexico City. The garden is filled with lush vegetation native to Mexico, as well as landmarks of Kahlo's Caza Azul garden, including a pyramid that was used to display Rivera's collection of Colombian artifacts, a frog-themed fountain and Kahlo's desk and easel.
To accompany the exhibition, the Botanical Garden also has six Botanical Fridas on display. The large-scale statues were created by Paul Zarkin and decorated in collaboration with international artists.
"Frida Kahlo Oasis" will be on view through November 2 and is included with garden admission and membership.
$12-$15, 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, San Antonio Botanical Garden, 555 Funston Place, (210) 536-1400, sabot.org.
