JACKSON, Mich — Jackson’s Ella Sharp Museum is offering free admission on “Frida Free Days” this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) was a world renowned artist known for her passion to show people where she was from.

“She took inspiration from particularly areas of Mexico that she lived in,” said Ella Sharp museum Executive Director Diane Gutenkauf. “She often wore traditional clothing or was inspired by food stuffs that came from Mexico and highlighted that in her work. So, you’ll see some of that in the exhibit.”

Guests who come to the exhibit will see iconic photographs of her home and garden, some reproductions of her paintings, a dress from Oaxaca where she made many of her dresses, and collections from Diego Rivera as well.

“They create this kind of condensed reproductive style of exhibit that tours nationally and we were fortunate enough to have it come to Jackson," said Ella Sharp museumcurator Rachel Veramay.

The exhibit will be on display until March 16.
