Frida Kahlo: Her Photos @ The Artisphere

Frida Kahlo after an operation/1946, Antonio Kahlo

Frida Kahlo: Her Photos is an exhibition of 240 photographs from Frida Kahlo's personal collection which will be on view at The Artisphere in Arlington, VA until March 25.  The original collection of over 6,500
images had been in sealed in storage for over 50 years until 2007. This will be the first and only United States venue to host the exhibit and admissions are free.  If you are close to Virginia, you should definitely check it out.  If you are not so fortunate, I've loaded some images below so you can get a synopsis of what you'll be missing.
