Frida Kahlo: Timeless Exhibition

Works on loan from the Olmedo Museum

June 5 - Sept. 6, 2021

Show Details

In light of the impact of COVID-19, we have determined the health and safety of all communities must remain our top priority and have therefor decided to reschedule the upcoming Frida Kahlo 2020 exhibition to Jun. 5 – Sept. 6, 2021, retitled to Frida Kahlo: Timeless.

Although this was an incredibly difficult decision to make, we feel that this will give us the best opportunity to bring Frida’s artwork to the widest community possible, and to present her legacy in the celebratory spirit with which has always been intended. The decision was made in concert with our partners and stakeholders, and we are very fortunate to have their support both now and in the future.

Those who have purchased a ticket to Frida Kahlo 2020 do not need to take any action. The MAC Box Office team will automatically move those tickets to the equivalent date in 2021. A calendar of those new dates can be viewed at Ticketholders for whom the new date does not work or who have questions may email the box office at
