The weather’s on the move. You can see it in the cardigans sprinkling sidewalk traffic, and the words “pumpkin spice” galloping across coffee shop windows from here to the city limits. It’s moving in the Garden, too, however small the measures; the air’s crisp and the summer haze is lifting, and in pockets you see the subtle tease of changing leaves. But while the heat may be pulling up stakes, our blockbuster summer exhibition—FRIDA KAHLO: Art, Garden, Life—is anything but finished. I’d say it’s just getting started in the new season.
As we head into fall, keep an eye out for the first signs of Día de los Muertos, the Mexican day of the dead held in honor of passed relatives. We’re already prepping for two incredible weekends held in celebration of the holiday come late October, and we’re not about to miss an opportunity to invite our friend Ray Villafane, pumpkin carver extraordinaire, to join us in the adventure. During Frida al Fresco evenings from now through the end of the exhibition on November 1, expect the fall colors to mingle in kind with new schedules of live music, dance, food, and drink to suit the season.
If you haven’t seen FRIDA, now’s your best shot.
