This weekend the Prescott Valley Public Library will feature a presentation entitled “The Elephant and The Dove.” Art Docent Carolyn Harris will lead the presentation about famous painter Diego Rivera and artist Frida Kahlo, at 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 8 in the 3rd floor Crystal Room.
Rivera, the greatest Mexican painter of the twentieth century, had a profound effect on the international art world and introduced fresco painting into modern art and architecture. His radical political views and tempestuous romance was a source of public intrigue. Frida Kahlo considered her artwork to be her self-description. She was considered one of the century’s most gifted narcissists. Rivera and Kahlo joined forces in and out of marriage to produce world-famous art. Saturday’s presentation will focus on their tumultuous relationship and their contributions to the art world. Reservations are not required for this free event.
