The Dallas Museum of Art is making their Frida Kahlo: Five Works exhibition accessible like never before this May. See #FridaInDallas this month at one (or all) of the museum’s pop-up locations!

“Get inspired by the vibrant works of Frida Kahlo beyond the DMA’s walls and out in your community,” the museum wrote in a Facebook post. “We’re setting up pop-up spots around Dallas featuring larger-than-life renderings of Kahlo’s paintings from the exhibition.

As you can see from the map, the pop-up locations include the Toyota Music Factory, Downtown Garland at 506 Main Street, and an undisclosed location in Oak Cliff.

The pop-up is part of the museum’s ongoing Five Works: Frida Kahlo exhibit that features five of the iconic artist’s pieces, including four paintings and one illustration.

“Frida Kahlo: Five Works offers a rare chance to explore a selection of works by acclaimed Mexican painter Frida Kahlo,” the museum writes on its website. “Since her death in 1954, Kahlo’s deeply emotional and vibrant paintings have garnered ever-increasing attention, transforming the celebrated artist into a global cultural phenomenon.”

The four paintings on display include:

  • Still Life (I Belong to Samuel Fastlitch)
  • Still Life with Parrot and Fruit
  • Sun and Life
  • Diego and Frida 1929 – 1944

View of New York (Dedicated to Dolores del Río) – a drawing depicting NY’s landscape as seen from the Barbizon Plaza Hotel where Frida and Diego Rivera stayed in their time in the city, will also be on display.

The exhibition and pop-up pieces are free to the public and will be on display until June 20.
