Museums & Galleries

This home, designed by Juan O'Gorman in 1933, was the birthplace for many of Diego Rivera and Frieda Kahlo's projects. Rivera's studio remains virtually untouched from the day in which the muralist died. Among the many personal objects on view he also left unfinished canvases on over-sized easels, pre-Hispanic pieces, photographs and his collection of judas figures. These bearded demons are traditionally made of carton, filled with firecrackers and are set off on the Saturday of Glory before Easter Sunday. For over two decades, Rivera and Kahlo shared this space in the pursuit of their artistic visions. Frieda's studio, an individual house within the complex, today hosts temporary exhibitions.
