    Talk of the Town Lecture Series: All About Frida Kahlo

    Discovery Green presents Talk of the Town - a new series of free lectures in the park. First up, All About Frida, Friday, September 23, 7 – 9 pm. Dr. Gregorio Luke returns to Houston to perform his unique lecture on Frida Kahlo (pictured), the great Mexican Artist.

    Frida Kahlo was born July 6, 1907 in Mexico City. A childhood disease caused her right leg to wither, resulting in a partial amputation many years later. Further aggravating her health was a gruesome bus accident that led to numerous operations and a life of virtually constant pain. Frida Kahlo, who would marry famous Mexican muralist Diego Rivera, was able to create some of the most original and powerful paintings of the 20th century.

    This fully illustrated lecture presents a kaleidoscopic portrait of Frida Kahlo. Using over 300 slides of her paintings, and documentary photographs as well as rare film footage, this panoramic lecture reveals a multi-faceted Kahlo whose persona was deeply rooted in Mexican culture and popular art traditions.
