UNT on the Square’s current art exhibition is the Kahlo Rivera 100 Exhibit. This exhibition displays graphic design artwork that honors Mexican artists Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. The showcase began Sept. 28 and will be accessible to the public until Nov. 3.
Associate Director Meredith Buie said, “The purpose of this event is to showcase the graphic design works created in tribute by members of the Alliance Graphique Internationale.”
The Alliance Graphique Internationale is an organization that consists of the greatest graphic designers and artists from all over the world. These designers are the ones who paid homage to Kahlo and Rivera through their art.
“Director Herbert Holl worked directly with the Consulate of Mexico in Dallas to curate this exhibit,” Buie said.
Essentially, it is because of the generosity and courtesy of the Consulate of Mexico in Dallas that this exhibition was possible.
There are many events occurring alongside the exhibition. Every Thursday, there is a Night of Music from 7-9 p.m. Oct. 29, Teatro Dallas will be presenting a reading of “Conversation with Diego Rivera: The Monster in his Labyrinth.” This staged reading moderated by Sara Cardon and Cora Cardona Hurst and will take place from 5-8 p.m.
UNT on the Square is located at 109 N Elm St. in Denton. This address is where the exhibit as well as any supplementary events are held. Buie said that this exhibition is open to everyone, and there is no admission fee. The staged reading Oct. 29 will be the last organized event before the conclusion of the exhibition.
