Short on time but full of curiosity? Join us for Spotlight Tours, 20 minute conversations in the galleries led by one of our Museum Guides. Throughout the summer, each Spotlight Tour will highlight a Director’s Pick.

In 1931, Frida Kahlo came to San Francisco and painted a portrait of herself and her husband, Diego Rivera, for their good friend Albert Bender, one of SFMOMA’s earliest supporters. We invite you to discuss the intricacies of love and friendship that Kahlo expressed in Frieda and Diego Rivera with one of our Museum Guides
