Join the BCYC South group to take a tour of the Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Mexican Modernism Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection. Located at the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach, this is sure to be an interesting and educational outing!

When Jacques and Natasha Gelman emigrated to Mexico, they quickly became friends of the leading artists of the time, including Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. Decades later, theirs is one of the greatest collections of modern Mexican art in the world. Enjoy works by artists inspired by the ideals of the Mexican Revolution and artifacts of indigenous cultures, including Rufino Tamayo, Lola Alvarez Bravo, as well as Rivera.
