In case you haven't already heard, the Frida Kahlo exhibit going on right now at the New York Botanical Gardens in the Bronx really is worth seeing. It's unique in that in addition to showing off some of Kahlo's great art, it features a recreation of of the artist's own garden and studio in her famed Mexico City home, named Casa Azul.
