Enjoy the PBS documentary “The Life and Times of Frida Kahlo.” Filmmaker Amy Stechler uncovered thousands of photographs as well as rare movie footage of the artist Frida Kahlo and her era. Through interviews with friends, students and experts, viewers will see a profoundly new portrait of this legendary artist. This film is an intimate biography of a woman who gracefully balanced a private life of illness and pain against a public persona that was flamboyant, irreverent and world-renowned. The film has not been rated and discretion is advised for children younger than age 13.
Two sessions are available:
- Session 1: 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

This program is being held in connection with the Frida Kahlo's Garden exhibition. This exhibition is made possible by NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Frida Kahlo’s Garden is adapted from the exhibition, FRIDA KAHLO: ART, GARDEN, LIFE, organized by guest curator Adriana Zavala at The New York Botanical Garden. It was made possible with major funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, Karen Katen Foundation, The LuEsther T. Mertz Charitable Trust, MetLife Foundation, National Endowment for the Arts, National Endowment for the Humanities, New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and Gillian and Robert Steel. It was adapted and toured for NEH on the Road by the Mid-America Arts Alliance.
