Museums

Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving

Brooklyn Museum

Now - May 12

Buy timed tickets in advance here

Mexican artist Frida Kahlo’s unique and immediately recognizable style was an integral part of her identity. Kahlo came to define herself through her ethnicity, disability, and politics, all of which were at the heart of her work. Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving is the largest U.S. exhibition in ten years devoted to the iconic painter and the first in the United States to display a collection of her clothing and other personal possessions, which were rediscovered and inventoried in 2004 after being locked away since Kahlo’s death, in 1954.

They are displayed alongside important paintings, drawings, and photographs from the celebrated Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection of 20th Century Mexican Art, as well as related historical film and ephemera.

THE ORCHID SHOW 2019

February 23 – April 28

The Orchid Show is my favorite Spring time event in the city. Each year the NY Botanical Garden creates an impressive orchid display in their greenhouse. Each year it has a different theme. Singapore—where the national flower is an orchid—is the inspiration for the 17th annual Orchid Show. Read my experience and see more photos here.

Elevate your interest in these storied flowers that are an integral part of the island’s culture and landscape. Developed in partnership with Gardens by the Bay and Singapore Botanic Gardens, the exhibition pays homage to the sites’ iconic Supertrees—dramatic vertical habitats, and famed Arches—a highlight of the National Orchid Garden.

The best way to experience this tremendous display is to go during Orchid Evenings. During these select nights, a live DJ plays in the greenhouse and guest’s can enjoy tasty alcoholic drinks at the bar.
