Museums across New York City always contain fascinating exhibits, but this month there are especially exciting retrospectives on some of the world’s most iconic artists. This February at the Brooklyn Museum, visitors can explore the life and work of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo in their new exhibit, Frida Kahlo: Appearance Can be Deceiving. For the first time ever in the United States, the museum will exhibit a collection of her clothing and other personal possessions such as hand-painted corsets and prosthetics that she used. The exhibit is also the largest exhibition of Kahlo’s work to be held in the U.S. in ten years. Appearances Can be Deceiving will be on display until May 12, 2019.
