Frida Kahlo Oasis Exhibition at the San Antonio Botanical Garden
May 8 – Nov. 2, 2021
9 AM – 7 PM | Monday – Friday

9 AM – 5 PM | Saturday – Sunday

Making its world debut, Frida Kahlo Oasis brings to life the artist’s deep connection with Mexican native vegetation and the natural world.  In this mesmerizing exhibition, visitors will be transported through a unique environment of shades, scents, sounds, and sights.  A captivating rendition of the artist’s iconic blue home, Casa Azul, and garden will occupy a 2,100 square foot space nestled in the heart of the Botanical Garden.  Visitors are invited to explore the famous landmarks of Kahlo’s garden at Casa Azul such as the pyramid that displayed Diego Rivera’s pre-Colombian artifacts collection, the frog-themed fountain, and Kahlo’s desk and easel.  The exhibition will also feature six monumental animals specially sighted throughout the lush garden grounds – a Dog, Monkey, Deer, Butterfly, Parrot, and Hummingbird – which often appear in Kahlo’s artworks, as a testimonial to her passion for Mexican Arte Popular.
