This was part 2 of a 3 part Dine and Learn Lecture Series sponsored by Main Street Leasing, 1921 by Norman Van Aken and Modernism Museum Mount Dora. This whole series is designed around Frida Kahlo, one of Mexico's greatest artists and the influence she had on art and culture.

Part 2: Explored the idea of Surrealism. Detailed discussions on how Salvador Dali embraced the label of Surrealism and with both Kahlo and Dali having an exotic or eccentric lifestyle we compared and contrasted the works of both these influential artists.
