A new play at The Living Room examines the artist's trials and tribulations, especially a series of tragic events that would have daunted many people but actually motivated her to paint in the first place.</p><p>Kahlo had a look as distinctive as her art. In a series of self-portraits, she emits a piercing stare from beneath an arched unibrow and a crown of braids. And her work has found the acclaim that eluded her in life.</p><p><strong>Picture perfect</strong></p> Wed, 07 May 2014 10:30:00 +0000 Steve Walker 55241 at http://kcur.org Frida Kahlo Comes Alive In The Living Room's 'Frida...A Self Portrait' KC Fringe Dares Artists To Take A Chance http://kcur.org/post/kc-fringe-dares-artists-take-chance <p>KC Fringe has been called a festival of daring – providing an opportunity for artists to take risks and to challenge themselves.
