Kahlo and Rivera exhibit at the Detroit Institute of Arts
                        March 15 to July 12, 2015

Frida Kahlo and Diego Riveraís time in Detroit was a turning point for both artists. 

 Rivera was a workaholic, spending the first three months in Detroit doing hundreds of
observational drawings from the auto factories. Kahlo, meanwhile, was largely
unimpressed by her time in Detroit.  However, with Rivera's encouragement,
Kahlo was able to channel these experiences into
groundbreaking and surreal, yet autobiographical paintings.
