I am so extremely happy that I got to see some pieces of art as well as personal belongings of one of my heroes. Frida Kahlo is someone I’ve looked up to dearly. Her exhibit of personal items, works of art I’ve never seen, and just doodles touches me so dearly. Appearances can be deceiving.... after my cancer diagnosis, one of the many things I’ve heard so often was, “wow! You didn’t LOOK like you had cancer!” Or, “you don’t even look sick!” As if someone with cancer is supposed to look a certain way. 🙄 Her life and battles with illnesses were not the easiest; for this and for her will to fight back against not only herself/own body and other overarching issues in society and personal life, I salute her. She loved New York but scrutinized both the extreme poverty and richness she saw which still exists today. I feel now, more than ever, her thoughts and scrutiny are so very relevant. #fridakahlo #brooklynmuseum #frida #kahlo #art #mexicana #mexicanartist
