Diego Rivera: Murals For The Museum Of Modern Art

On Tuesday night the MOMA hosted an opening party for Diego Rivera: Murals For The Museum Of Modern Art, almost 80 years since Rivera was commissioned to work and exhibit his large-scale murals at the museum. Attendees included Arturo Sarukhan, Ambassador of Mexico to the United States, Margarita Zavala, First Lady of Mexico, and Guadalupe Rivera Marin, daughter of Diego Rivera. The exhibition consists of eight portable murals - large blocks of frescoed plaster, slaked line and wood - and smaller drawings, archival materials related to the commission and production of these works, and designs for Rivera's famous Rockefeller Center mural, which he also produced while he was working at the museum. The show runs through May 14, 2012.
