Chicagoans will soon be able to step literally into the life and works of legendary artist Frida Kahlo.
“Immersive Frida Kahlo” opens in Chicago’s Old Town neighborhood next week, bringing the Mexican-born artist’s journey and paintings to life on a large scale set to music.
Created by the same team that brought “Immersive Van Gogh,” the new exhibit will project some of Kahlo’s most famous works onto the walls of the Lighthouse ArtSpace Chicago, located at 108 W Germania Pl, starting Feb. 24.
“Frida Kahlo’s art is not only aesthetically beautiful, it has also become a universal symbol of resilience and perseverance. Courageous and brutally honest, Kahlo transferred her fears and pain onto canvas with a way that resonates even more powerfully with us today,” the exhibit team wrote.
Tickets are now available here, starting at $40.
The organizers of “Immersive Frida Kahlo” will require all guests to wear a mask when visiting the exhibition and will operate at reduced capacity with social distancing.
