Carlene VanVoorhies, DIA Docent, will take us on a virtual tour to learn the complex and intriguing story behind Diego Rivera and his Detroit Industry Murals. The “Detroit Industry Murals” (1932-1933) are a series of frescoes by the Mexican artist Diego Rivera, consisting of twenty-seven panels depicting industry at the Ford Motor Company and in Detroit. Together they surround the interior Rivera Court in the Detroit Institute of Arts. Painted between 1932 and 1933, they were considered by Rivera to be his most successful work. In April 2014, the “Detroit Industry Murals” were designated by the Department of Interior as a National Historic Landmark.
