Diego María de la Concepción Juan Nepomuceno Estanislao de la Rivera y Barrientos Acosta y Rodríguez, known as Diego Rivera (December 8, 1886 – November 24, 1957) was a prominent Mexican painter and the husband of Frida Kahlo. His large wall works in fresco helped establish the Mexican Mural Movement in Mexican art. Between 1922 and 1953, Rivera painted murals among others in Mexico City, Chapingo, Cuernavaca, San Francisco, Detroit, and New York City. In 1931, a retrospective exhibition of his works was held at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

Diego Rivera THE MAN AND HIS MURALS

This saturday August 3rd during the presentation, details of each of Diego Rivera´s murals will be revealed, and by popular demand, the presentation will include the MURALS OF THE RENAISSANCE that inspired Diego, set to beautiful baroque music and will show rare film clips of Diego and Frida.  The focus will be on the murals Diego painted in Detroit, that are now in danger because of the bankruptcy of the city. 

This great cultural event will be presented by Gregorio Luke, former director of MOLAAthe Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach where this event will take place. Mr. Luke is also the former Consul of Cultural Affairs of Mexico in Los Angeles and the First Secretary of the Embassy of Mexico in Washington D.C.

On this special night, Gregorio Luke will also discuss new interpretations of Diego Rivera´s  life, for example, how the death of his twin brother when he was a child may have affected his life and his art.
