Photographing Public Art Challenge (PPAC) # 16: Frida Kahlo-Themed

Still playing catch-up with the Photographing Public Art Challenge (PPAC) co-hosted by Cee Neuner and Marsha Ingrao.

Such a fun challenge, self is so happy whenever she gets to post.

Happened to be at the local car-wash, and was amused by some Frida Kahlo items:

These Diego and Frida Christmas ornaments were in the SFMOMA Store:

And finally, further proof (if proof were needed) that Frida Kahlo’s influence is worldwide, these socks were on sale at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford, UK:

Self’s personal favorite is the Frida Kahlo pillow.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

Past Squares 4: When Museums Re-Opened

For today’s Past Squares challenge, she’s posting a couple of photos from two big exhibits she saw this year: the Frida Kahlo and Judy Chicago exhibits, both in the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park.

Self had tickets to see the Frida Kahlo exhibit last year, but the week she was supposed to go, the whole city abruptly went into pandemic lockdown mode and stayed locked down into 2021. As soon as the de Young re-opened to the public, just this past spring, self rushed over. YAY!

The Frida Kahlo exhibit was followed by the Judy Chicago retrospective (which is still on; everyone within driving distance should go: it is FANTASTIC!)

Life in Colour, 17 May: PURPLE

Purple is not violet. Interesting!

Self loves purple flowers, and you can find a gallery of them on the Travel with Intent blog, which hosts Life in Colour.

Here is her own gallery of purple:

  • Lavatera (in front yard). It’s never looked this bushy before.

A few more:

  • Displays at yesterday’s Palo Alto Farmers Market
  • Exhibit catalogue for the recent Frida Kahlo exhibit at the de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park (which self saw in April, just before it closed for good)

Your Frida Kahlo Picture of the Day: Apr. 23 BRIGHT SQUARES

April Bright Squares have been so much fun!

The host of this challenge is Becky at The Life of B.

Yesterday was her birthday. Happy, Happy Birthday, Becky!

Self took loads of pictures at the de Young last Tuesday. And she bought the Frida Kahlo exhibit catalogue (a steal at $19.99). The exhibit was supposed to open last year, self had a ticket for March 2020. Finally, finally, over a year later, she saw it!

Stay safe, dear blog readers. Stay safe.
