As a huge Frida Kahlo fan and coming from San Antonio, Texas, there was an event hosted by the San Antonio Botanical Garden called the Frida Kahlo Oasis. Kahlo was a Mexican painter best known for her uncompromising and brilliantly colored self-portraits that deal with such themes as identity, the human body, and death. The Frida Kahlo Oasis was a captivating rendition of the artist’s iconic blue home, Casa Azul, and lush green sanctuary that profoundly influenced her timeless art.
