Exhibition Review

The Passion for Frida exhibition opened last Saturday to a super packed house in the beautiful and bright new Oakland space – known as Sanchez Contemporary. We love and obsess over all things Frida Kahlo and the amount of dynamic, passionate and inspired imagery honoring Frida in this show are terrific. We’ve selected a few of our favorite artworks here – this is definitely a must see exhibition!
