One hundred twenty-five years ago today the Mexican muralist and painter Diego Rivera was born.
Locally, we can visit what Rivera himself believed to be the best work of his career: Detroit Industry in the Detroit Institute of Arts. This fresco cycle, created in 1932-1933, covers the walls of Rivera Court.
