Join us for a virtual Art Talk to discuss the work of Diego Rivera and the Mexican muralists.
Muralism in Mexico has a long tradition and its legacy dates back to the pre-Hispanic period with the Olmecs, which produced some of the earliest known painted art in Mesoamerica. Later on, Muralism was used under Hispanic rule to introduce the Mexican people to the stories and ideas of Catholicism. Since then, mural painting became one of the most dominant forms of art in Mexican culture. This rich background fostered the birth of the Mexican Muralism movement after the Mexican Revolution of 1910.
Mexican art expert Luz Elena Mainero will discuss the importance of the Muralism movement in Mexican art and culture. Mrs. Mainero will talk about the movement, the painters such as Rivera, Siquerios and Orozco and their influence in the movement.
The talk will be conducted mainly in Spanish and English will be used just for clarification. All levels are welcome!
