Paint and plants combine at the new New York Botanical Garden’s Frida Kahlo exhibit. Called “Art-Garden-Life,” the exhibit opened this past weekend in the Garden’s conservatory. Original paintings will hang amongst a garden inspired by the artists’ own garden at her home, La Casa Azul. Runs until November!
