Cleve Carney Museum Of Art Celebrates Frida Kahlo’s 113th Birthday With Drive-By Birthday Party
The Cleve Carney Museum of Art and McAninch Arts Center, located at 425 Fawell Blvd. on the College of DuPage campus, will celebrate the 113th birthday of the iconic Mexican artist Frida Kahlo with a drive-by birthday party from 9:30 – 10:30 a.m., Monday, July 6. In honor of Kahlo, CCMA will offer patrons a one-day $6 discount to kick off the on-sale of tickets to the upcoming landmark exhibition Frida Kahlo: Timeless, running June 5 – Sept. 6, 2021. Discount will be available online only at Frida2021.org with code FRIDA6.
The first 50 people to drive by will receive a bundtlet from Nothing Bundt Cake individually wrapped with a quote by Frida Kahlo, known for her profound and sometimes humorous commentary on life. Participants are encouraged to dress up in Frida-inspired clothing, flower crowns and accessories, with the best costume winning a $25 gift certificate to a local restaurant. The acclaimed Mariachi Monumental De México who wowed the crowd at the MAC’s “Frida Fest” celebration this past September, will provide musical entertainment with a joyful rendition of Las Mañanitas, the traditional song Mexicans sing to honor one on their birthday and more, and the event will feature a balloon arch as well as a special larger than life Frida Kahlo surprise that needs to be seen to be believed.
