Art Talk Tuesday
Diego Rivera: Art for a New World
Tuesday, November 10 at 12pm on Zoom
Diego Rivera was one of the big men of 20th century art—big physically, big in personality, and a big influence on American art at mid-century. His mural style was forged in the Mexican Revolution; in his American murals, he achieved an incongruous synthesis between a reverence for the indigenous cultures of his native land and an appreciation of the American industrial modernity. Guest speaker Avril Angevine will share how Rivera was a prodigious talent whose commitment to art as a political act resonates today. As he said, he didn’t believe in God, but he did believe in Picasso.
