Philbrook Ambassador Circle Members are invited to the exclusive opening celebration of Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and Mexican Modernism.

Featuring renowned paintings, drawings, and collages by Kahlo and Rivera, along with more than 100 photographs of their lives, this highly anticipated exhibition offers a deep exploration of the real people behind this work—and how their personas and their artistic practice continue to resonate with audiences today.
