  1. The rich and colorful life of Frida Kahlo is revealed in “The Complete Frida Kahlo: Her Paintings. Her Life. Her Story. The Exhibition,” making its North American premiere in San Diego from October 24, 2013, through January 19, 2014, at historic NTC at Liberty Station. This is the only exhibition worldwide where all of her paintings can be seen in one place. Some paintings, especially from Kahlo’s early years, have never before been seen.
    Presented by Global Entertainment Properties 1, LLC, (GEP1) the exhibition features 123 replicas of her known paintings in original size and original materials, and hand- painted in the same style as Kahlo painted them. These replicas, owned by GEP1, are painted by master artists and licensed by ©Banco de Mexico Diego Rivera & Frida Kahlo Museums Trust/VG Bild-Kunst, Bonn 2008.
    The exhibition is co-curated by Dr. Mariella Remund and Hans-J├╝rgen Gehrke, passionate art lovers and collectors, and founders of the Kunstmuseum Gehrke- Remund in Baden-Baden, Germany, the city where Kahlo’s father spent his youth before emigrating to Mexico. Their vision for this exhibition was to not only touch the eyes and minds of the visitors, but above all, their hearts.
    Also on display are over 500 fascinating possessions— jewelry, dresses and adornments identical to those Kahlo surrounded herself, all are handmade by artisans using traditional methods and materials.
