In honor of the Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo exhibit at the DIA, I am posting these photos from 2012. This flamenco dance exhibit was in the Rivera Courtyard. The woman dancing is Valeria Montes, who played Frida in “The Troublemakers: Frida and Diego in Detroit,” written by Luis Aguilar. Beth and I saw the play at the Elizabeth Theater in Detroit, and it was amazing. Valeria’s performance as Frida was superb. I hope they bring it back to Detroit.
The exhibit of Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo’s work – including their time in Detroit – is now at the DIA. I saw it last Friday and it is excellent. Tickets are available through DIA.org.
