Diego does Detroit!

On March 13, 1933, Mexican artist Diego Rivera completed “Detroit Industry”, which Rivera considered to be his greatest mural in the US.  Rivera, a member of the Mexican Communist Party, was a great admirer of the city of Detroit and its industrial strength.  The Detroit Institute of Arts commissioned Rivera to paint the series of three murals, which took over a year to finish.  Among his other accomplishments, Rivera was married to the famous Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo.
