Frida Khalo Exhibit at the Dali

Arts & Entertainment

By Margaretha Seibert

Frida Khalo’s work is on display at the Dali museum in downtown St. Petersburg now through April 17th. The exhibit, which has been at the Dali since December 17th, is an excellent tribute to Khalo’s life.

Museum admission grants visitors the opportunity to view the permanent Dali collection and Khalo’s exhibit, which features paintings, photographs from her lifetime, journal excerpts, and an outside extension that mimics her personal garden.  In addition to the exhibits, the museum also offers a store and café.   

Students who took or are currently enrolled in HUM2233 Western Humanities: Baroque to Contemporary can put their knowledge to the test identifying important figures learned in class. Khalo’s heart wrenching and powerful work can capture any visitor’s attention. On display by Khalo, “The Broken Column,” taught in HUM2233, symbolizes Khalo’s hurting heart as well as her power to overcome life’s tribulations.

Khalo’s astounding art teaches lessons to young and old, where every visitors can take a special piece of her with them when they leave.

Beautifully decorated and aesthetically pleasing, the Dali, as well as downtown St. Petersburg, has much to offer everyone.
