Artist Frida Kahlo was born 110 years ago today (July 6, 2017) in Coyoacán, just outside Mexico City in 1907.

When she was 18, the bus she was riding collided with a streetcar, fracturing her collarbone, spine, and pelvis. She first took up painting while she was bedridden in the months following the collision.

Years later Kahlo said: "There have been two great accidents in my life. One was the trolley, and the other was Diego [Rivera]. Diego was by far the worst."

I visited the Oklahoma City Museum of Art last week and viewed the Dale Chihuly permanent collection and current exhibit: "Magic and Light."

About his career in sculpting glass, Chihuly says, "My work to this day revolves around a simple set of circumstances: fire, molten glass, human breath, spontaneity, centrifugal force, gravity."

Of his Macchia series, which he began in 1981, Chihuly explains, "Each piece was another experiment. When we unloaded the ovens in the morning, there was the rush of seeing something I had never seen before. Like much of my work, the series inspired itself. The unbelievable combinations of color -- that was the driving force.

"
