PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — An exhibit featuring the works of iconic Mexican artists Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera will be on view at the Portland Art Museum this month.
the exposure will highlight the Mexican modernism of the Jacques and Natasha Gelman collection, which explores the avant-garde cultural movement in Mexico at the beginning of the 20and century.
