Frida Kahlo captivates us as much with the Courage of her life as with the uniqueness of her Art. This pilgrimage is designed for Frida Kahlo fans who feel a connection to this fiercely passionate woman, and who are seeking an informal way to immerse themselves for a week in her Life, Culture, Country & Art.

We have arranged a Frida Pilgrimage for you with unparalleled access to her places of inspiration, as well as many of her paintings available for viewing in the City & surrounding
areas. Our experience starts in a town north of Mexico City, Guanajuato, where there is a Mummy Museum. This is essential to understanding that Frida's obsession with Death and Skeletal images derived from her Culture rather than any desire to be part of the Surrealist movement. For the remainder of the trip we are based in Mexico City, so that we may walk in her footsteps and immerse ourselves in many of the Cultural influences she expressed in her Art. We stay in her hometown of Coyoacan, where we see the home where she was born in 1910. The walls are still painted the vivid cornflower-blue color she favored, and many rooms remain in their original state. In the studio upstairs, her wheelchair sits next to the easel with a partially completed painting surrounded by paintbrushes, palettes, books & photos.
 

The iconography with which she is so identified, flows out of the rich vein of her Mexican heritage, and we seek these out for your own direct experience:

The Flower Markets / Ancient Pyramids / Monkeys / Skeleton Icons / Pre-Columbian Pottery & Textiles / Magnificent Cathedrals / & Fabulous food.

Evening entertainment includes: Ballet Folklorica. You are always accompanied, both in the hotel, during all meals, excursions and evenings out, by your bilingual, enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide for a unique & memorable experience.
For a 1st hand account of this trip, please contact an alumnae from 2004, and 2007.
