The Frida Kahlo: Timeless exhibition ends on September 12th, and is taking place at the Cleve Carney Museum of Art and McAninch Arts Center inside the College of Dupage. The experience immerses audiences in Kahlo’s work, giving them the ultimate opportunity to see this giant collection in their own backyard.
