Visit to Frida Kahlo exhibit
On Wednesday, Sept. 16, the Howland Cultural Center is hosting a bus trip to the New York Botanical Garden to see the exhibit of artist Frida Kahlo’s paintings and a reinterpretation of her courtyard garden at her lifelong home, Casa Azul, in Mexico City.
In addition, visitors may explore 250 acres of flowers, plants and trees that can be viewed by motorized carts, and the Shop in the Garden has a vast selection of books and gifts related to the Kahlo exhibit and more.
Lunch is available at the garden in any one of three venues, also offering Mexican specialties.

The bus leaves Beacon promptly at 9 a.m. and returns approximately at 5:30 p.m. It will pick up and return passengers to the parking lot on Henry Street, directly behind the Yankee Clipper Diner. There is ample parking for cars in this municipal lot .
