Join North Carolina Museum of Art Curator Jennifer Dasal for a talk about Melissa Aldana’s art inspiration directly before Visions for Frida Kahlo.

She’s the artist whose fame is so widespread she has become an international cultural phenomenon, often adopted as beauty icon, feminist, accessibility advocate, non-binary hero, and Latinx idol. But who was Frida Kahlo during her lifetime?
