Featuring over 60 reproductions of rare historical photographs, this exhibition offers a personal look into the rich and harrowing 25-year relationship of one of the most fascinating couples in art history – Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo. The images, captured by their friends and family including Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Nickolas Muray, Edward Weston, Guillermo Kahlo and others, showcase their upbringing, family histories, professional careers and more, culminating with the last known photograph of the couple. Through their individual artistic talents, their powerful union and their imposing presence, Kahlo and Rivera became one of the most provocative and recognized couples in the world of art.

Diego & Frida: A Visual History is on display in the Raymond James Community Room. This exhibit is on loan from The Consulate of Mexico in Orlando and is made possible by the Museo Casa Estudio Diego Rivera y Frida Kahlo.
