Frida Look Alike contest FRIDA KAHLO al fresco LGBT NightFrom the first day of FRIDA KAHLO: Art, Garden, Life, we have been awestruck by the stellar Frida-inspired looks displayed by our visitors. Kahlo aficionados of all ages and from all over have flocked to the Garden in flower crowns, colorful shawls, and long skirts, entering the reimagined Casa Azul in the Haupt Conservatory while evoking the iconic artist. Without any prompting, many of the record number of visitors to see this show have put in impressive effort to make this a singular and heartwarming moment in the Garden’s nearly 125-year history.

To reward the enthusiasm of the art- and garden-lovers attending this exhibition, NYBG has held a series of Frida Look-Alike Contests during select evening events throughout the six-month run of FRIDA KAHLO: Art, Garden, Life. Thursday, October 22, is your last chance to participate in—or simply admire—these joyous and festive evenings of creative display. Register today for a chance to show off your best Frida and win a gift bag from NYBG Shop. An Honorable Mention will go out to whomever best incorporates an homage to Día de los Muertos in their outfit.

All approved contestants will enjoy complimentary admission to the October 22 Frida al Fresco evening for LGBT Night and the Frida Look-Alike Contest. Pre-registration is required for all contestants, and only 30 people will be selected to participate, so don’t wait to sign up for your chance at a complimentary Frida al Fresco ticket and further potential prizes! See images from previous contests for inspiration, and register today.
