NEW YORK, N.Y. - Mexican artist Frida Kahlo's (FREE'-duh KAY'-lohz) native garden and studio will be reimagined at the New York Botanical Garden in the spring.

The garden will use flowers and plants native to Mexico in the exhibition "Frida Kahlo: Art, Garden, Life."

It will open May 16 and run through Nov. 1. The exhibition will reflect the bright colours and textures of Kahlo's portraits and still lifes.

The garden says it will be the artist's first solo exhibition in New York City in more than 25 years.

The exhibition will feature about a dozen original paintings and drawings highlighting her use of botanical imagery.

Photos of Kahlo and her husband, muralist Diego Rivera, also will be shown.

Kahlo died in 1954.
