Ode to Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo Exhibit Opening at the DIA - Detroit

Art Installation at FRIDA Boutique, Detroit's Park Shelton Building - All photos by - Alvita Lozano
Detroit's fashion boutique/retail owner Rachel Lutz opened her FRIDA specialty shop last year on the heals of her renowned Peacock Room retail store.  Both located in the historic Park Shelton building next to the Detroit Institute of Art Museum on Woodward Ave, you can't miss it if you attend the exhibit March-July 2015.  This installation is a wonderful collaboration between Rachel and I to celebrate the opening of the much anticipated Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo opening later this week at the DIA.  The installation has two of my pieces (both made with re-purposed material from my personal collection).  The vintage framed hunting photo on glass is called "Deer Frida Kahlo".  It is a tongue and cheek reference to the famous Mexican artist #Bisexuality, as the Buck proudly wears a floral headdress, an iconic element associated with Frida Kahlo's personal style.  FRIDA (15 east Kirby, Detroit, MI 48202 ) the shop is a sumptuous adventure and the go to retail experience.  I'm happy to say, I shop here and highly recommend a buying trip!  If you happen to stop by and see my installation please let me know what you think.  Viva Detroit Art, Culture and Fashion!
