"Flora is a very important part of her creativity," said guest curator Ariana Zavala, a specialist in Mexican art and director of Latino Studies at Tufts University. Even those who thought they knew everything about Kahlo, Zavala said, will come away having learned something new.The exhibit, "Frida Kahlo: Art, Garden, Life," includes 14 of Kahlo's original works; an evocation of the garden at her Mexico City home, Casa Azul (Blue House); plentiful photos from Kahlo's life; and various Mexican cultural offerings. Over time, Kahlo transformed Casa Azul into an expression of her deep connection to the natural world and to Mexico.Her studio overlooked the garden, and the plants came to play an important role in her art.In Kahlo's 1931 "Portrait of Luther Burbank," the horticulturalist, whose garden she and Rivera had visited, is depicted as a hybrid plant-human.
