We Dig Plants is back! Kicking off the new fall season with Claudia Mora of the New York Botanical Garden, the ladies are talking in-depth about the “Frida Kahlo: Art, Garden, Life” exhibit that is currently ongoing. Frida Kahlo loved her garden, and Claudia shares how the garden inspired Frida’s art. The artist’s studio in Mexico City overlooked a great deal of plant life, much of which became a part of her paintings. With passionate colors and interesting use of animals, flowers, and other natural imagery makes an eyeful for anyone venturing to the Bronx. Tune in for a behind the scenes look at this popular event! This program was brought to you by International Culinary Center.
