UACCM To Host Frida Kahlo Traveling Exhibit

The University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton (UACCM) will be displaying a Teacher’s Discovery Traveling Exhibit featuring the incredible Mexican paintings of Frida Kahlo during the week of September 24-28.
The exhibit was made possible by a donation to the UACCM Art Department from Dr. Eloise Sherman. UACCM Art Instructor Tina Lake said, “Dr. Sherman loves the arts and has been a great supporter of our program over the years.” Lake, Sarah Lawson’s Spanish language classes, and UACCM Coordinator of Multicultural Affairs Mary Newsome partnered to bring the exhibit to campus for Hispanic Heritage Month. The exhibit will be displayed in the main lobby of the E. Allen Gordon Library and is open for the public to view Monday- Thursday 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Friday.
Frida was married to Mexican muralist Diego Rivera but won acclaim for her own paintings, including many self-portraits. The students and staff will enjoy the beautiful reproductions, including life size photos of Frida. The exhibit celebrates fine art, women in art and Mexican culture!
