What could be better to do on a rainy weekend in Portland than see the infamous Frida Kahlo art exhibit at the Portland Art Museum?

If you don't already know, the Portland Art Museum is wrapping up the Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera Exhibit, ending on June 5th. If you haven't seen this Mexican Modernism art, it's a bucket list event, and I encourage you to squeeze this into your weekend schedule.

According to the PAM website:

Features more than 150 works; this traveling exhibition celebrates internationally acclaimed artists Frida Kahlo (1907–1954), Diego Rivera (1886–1957), and their contemporaries Manuel and Lola Álvarez Bravo, María Izquierdo, Carlos Mérida, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and Rufino Tamayo, among others. In addition to paintings and works on paper, the exhibition includes photographs and period clothing that reflect works by Kahlo and Rivera in the broader context of Mexican Modernism.

If you can't get to that exhibit, another Frida event in Lake Oswego is more interactive.

The Christ Church Episcopal Parish holds a Frida Fiesta on June 9th, from 6 pm-8 pm. The evening is spent celebrating one of the most famous artists of our time.

The church has partnered with One River School of Art + Design. This event will take you down the road of Frida Kahlo's personal life, art, and biography. You will get to paint your classic piece of art using acrylics.

Sign up early due to limited seating. The cost is $65 per person and includes all the materials – canvas, paint, brushes, instruction, plus food and beverages.
