SFMOMA & City College of San Francisco have partnered on a historic display of Diego Rivera’s Pan American Unity mural until January 2024. See the Emmy-winning NBC documentary.
“My mural which I am painting now—it is about the marriage of the artistic expression of the North and of the South on this continent, that is all. I believe in order to make an American art, a real American art, this will be necessary, this blending of the art of the Indian, the Mexican, the Eskimo, with the kind of urge which makes the machine, the invention in the material side of life, which is also an artistic urge, the same urge primarily but in a different form of expression.” – Diego Rivera
