After waiting much longer than planned, the Frida Kahlo exhibit is finally here at the Cleve Carney Museum of Art and the McAninch Arts Center at the College of DuPage! 

To celebrate, we’re joining our community in sharing our appreciation for her work, which not only represents the world of art but also the world of opportunities of how we view ourselves. 

We invite our community to stop by the bank between July 6 and August 7 to enter our sweepstakes for your chance to win tickets to the exhibit,1 pick up a Frida promotional item,2 and take a selfie with our Frida Frame. Enjoy our display of her self-portraits and other works of art. Plus, our Junior Savers have colored Frida-themed coloring pages, which are on display at the bank. And, we’re celebrating her birthday week with a special treat2 the week of July 6 - 10.

We are honored to celebrate her life and her art in union with the community. “At the end of the day, we can endure much more than we think we can.” - Frida Kahlo.
