Thousands view Frida Kahlo exhibition in Cozumel

Share This

COZUMEL — With an attendance of nearly 8,500 visitors, the exhibition “Echoes of ink and paper: From the intimacy of Frida Kahlo” concluded a three-month run in the Museum of the Island, reported the Parks and Museums Foundation of Cozumel (FPMC, for its acronym in Spanish).

This exhibition was the result of an agreement between the FPMC and the Frida Kahlo Foundation for Culture and the Arts, and was welcomed by the local community, as well as national and foreign tourists, who wanted to learn more about the life and work of one of the most recognized Mexican painters in the world, reported Notimex.

The curator of the exhibition is Cristina Kahlo, grandniece  of the painter, who was present at the inauguration of the 78 piece exhibition, including original letters and postcards, telegrams, stamps and photographs, which show the artist’s most intimate facet and the ways Frida used to communicate with family and friends.

The director of the Museum of the Island, Isela Carrillo Cupul explained that during this exhibition, several academic activities were carried out, as well as visits for children and young people from local educational institutions, in order to make the exhibition available to all sectors of society.


She pointed out that one of the main objectives of the FPMC is to bring the artistic and cultural activities closer to the community, while it is important for the Frida Kahlo Foundation to decentralize large exhibitions and take Kahlo’s work to all possible places.

“In Cozumel, the collaboration agreement between these two institutions fulfilled its raison d’être,”  she explained.

Carrillo Cupul commented that “Echoes of ink and paper. From the intimacy of Frida Kahlo ” is no longer structured as an exhibition, the pieces were dismantled and will make the journey back to the house of Cristina Kahlo, owner of this collection that will be waiting to see the light again in another gallery somewhere else within Mexico or abroad.

    With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being ripped off? I’d truly appreciate it.

    Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
