2. ART: “Frida & Diego: Passion, Politics, and Painting”
This exhibit showcases both the art and activism of two of the 20th century’s most iconic painters, the bisexual Frida Kahlo and her husband, Diego Rivera, with works that showcase their pride in their native Mexico, their commitment to social justice, and their role in historic events. More than 75 pieces are in the show, which was first mounted last fall in Canada and is now at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, the only U.S. venue where it will appear. It opened this week and will be on view through May 12.
