20th Century Mexican Artists: Speaking to the American Public NEW

ID : 46061   
« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Committed to the values of the Mexican Revolution, Mexican artists revived fresco painting to celebrate the Mexican people in murals adorning public spaces.  The muralists, most famously Orozco, Siqueros and Rivera, depicted the glory of the ancient American civilization ,as well as the contemporary political figures in narratives of the landscape of their time . 
Invited to bring their visions and expertise to public venues across Northern America, these artists enlarged the role American artists could serve - art made public, celebratory and activist.    This talk will familiarize you with the aesthetic and political backgrounds of the artists and their partnerships with artists, students, university trustees, Edsel Ford and John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Those murals which remain on display in in New York, New Hampshire, Detroit and California will be emphasized.
