Casa Azul - Frida Kahlo

The house where Frida Kahlo grew up is blue and beautiful. It is filled with her art, clothing, painting supplies, books, cookware, even her bed is there. She is a long time hero of mine. It was such an amazing experience seeing where she grew up, and continued to live part time. Her art portrays her struggle, and a piece of Frida is captured within every work.
