NEW YORK (FOX 5 NY) - Visitors to the Brooklyn Museum are getting a look at legendary Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, but as the exhibit suggests, 'appearances can be deceiving.'
The largest exhibit to the iconic painter in the last 10 years in the United States features many hand-painted corsets and prosthetics used by the artist in her lifetime.
"The objects shed new light on how Kahlo crafted her appearance and shaped her personal and public identity to reflect her cultural heritage and political beliefs, while also addressing and incorporating her physical disabilities."
Kahlo's cothing and personal possessions featured were rediscovered and inventoried in 2014 after being locked away since Kahl's death in 1954, according to the museum website.
Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving' runs through May 12. Advance tickets are sold out but same-day, on-site tickets are timed and offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
