Frida & Diego: Passion, Politics, and Painting opened yesterday at the High - just in time for Valentine's Day. More than 75 works situate husband and wife Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo within their political and aesthetic moment in Mexico's history and the history of the world. The exhibition will run through May 12. Every Saturday for the duration, the High will show two films in the Hill Auditorium - ¡Qué viva México! at 12 p.m. and Frida at 2 p.m.

More after the jump.
