Crystal Bridges Museum: Diego Rivera’s America

Wednesday 24th │ Depart 1pm

In his public murals and paintings, Diego Rivera depicted the human experience: families and workers, struggles and celebrations, histories and imagined futures. Between the early 1920s and the early 1940s, he worked in Mexico and the United States, finding inspiration in the social and cultural life of both places. He envisioned an America that shared an Indigenous past and an industrial future – where cooperation, rather than divisions, were paramount. The exhibition examines this prolific time in Rivera’s life through more than 130 works – including drawings, easel paintings, frescoes, etc. The first major exhibition focused solely on the Mexican artist in over 20 years, it reveals the broad range of Rivera’s work through a series of thematic sections that bring together more works from this time period than have been seen together since the artist’s lifetime. Admission is $12 for non-members.
