Meet the sixteen artists of The Dream is the Truth: Art Inspired by Frida Kahlo exhibition at the opening reception on Friday, September 15, 6-8 p.m. at City Hall Council Chamber, 6650 Beach Blvd.
Guests will have the chance to meet the artists and view their artwork, inspired by Frida Kahlo in many ways, while enjoying live music and poetry. The event is free and open to the public.
Frida Kahlo’s life and work has served as inspiration to artists of many identities for decades. The title for this show comes from Zora Neale Hurston’s seminal novel, Their Eyes Were Watching God. Although Kahlo’s work has often been described as Surrealist, she resisted the label, asserting, “I don’t paint dreams or nightmares, I paint my own reality.”
The Dream is the Truth will be on display at Buena Park City Hall Council Chamber September 12 – November 2, 2017. The Exhibiting Artist Program nurtures partnerships between artists, presenters, art organizations and the greater Buena Park Community.
