Frida Kahlo’s paintings illustrate the anguish and passion of a fascinating, complicated personal and artistic life. The astonishing works of this Mexican and feminist icon will be looked at through the lens of her ethnicity, disabilities, and political activism, especially emphasizing her engagement with the natural world.
About Our Presenter: Janet Mandel taught in New Jersey’s public schools for 32 years, the last eighteen of which were at Columbia High School in Maplewood, where she taught English, art history, and World Languages and Cultures. Now retired, Janet presents illustrated talks on a variety of art history topics at adult schools, libraries, museums, senior centers, community centers, and similar venues. Janet’s Frida talk will be her 25th art talk for the Pennington Public Library and her first in-person talk in the Pennington/Hopewell area.
Sponsored by the Pennington Public Library, Hopewell Public Library, Hopewell Valley Arts Council, and Friends of the Pennington Public Library
