An Evening with Frida Kahlo - DECEMBER 9, 2023 - 6:30-9:30 pm
An Evening with Frida Kahlo - Saturday, DEC 9, 2023. 6:30-10:00 PM - at the Gilchrist Museum of the Arts, 104 Washington Street, Cumberland, MD.
Embrace your inner free spirit and “be” Frida Kahlo, the fabulous Mexican artist whose incredible life, thought-provoking art, and passionate marriage to fellow artist Diego Rivera make her a woman to be celebrated! This evening will be full of vibrant art that inspires you to paint, music that makes you move, colors that come alive, served with Mexican-inspired refreshments to delight the senses!
Award-winning film segments of the film “Frida” highlighting this artist’s unusual creative life will be screened and you will experiment with her surrealist style by creating your own composition during a hands-on painting experience led by Beth Hilliker. Complimentary Mexican-inspired refreshments will be served along with Margaritas (both spirited and not) and, if inspired, enjoy dressing like Frida. Random Frida door gifts will be drawn and awarded throughout the evening along with a fan-favorite floral crowning of the person wearing the most Frida-like attire.
Join us for the fun as we celebrate Frida Kahlo - a woman of extreme magnetism and originality, experience channeling this indomitable artist whose sensual vibrancy came straight from her own incredible experiences.
