Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo in Detroit

MAR. 15 - Jul. 12, 2015

Exclusive Gift Tickets for Diego and Frida 

Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo were an explosive couple. He carried a pistol. She carried a flask. He romanticized Detroit. She rejected it. But what they shared was a belief in communism, a thirst for tequila and a passion for each other. Discover how they left their mark on Detroit.

Edgar Degas: Violinist and Young Woman

Edgar Degas

Violinist and Young Woman, c. 1871

“The figures are meticulously rendered but the canvas is unfinished at the lower edge. Degas often returned to paintings — sometimes after decades — but not this one. Perhaps he considered it “finished” after all.”

Graham W. J. Beal, Director, President and CEO
