stay@home / Diego Rivera’s Detroit Industry Murals

Due to the current national security situation, the Museum will be closed to the public, and all activities in physical spaces are postponed until further notice.

We are all going through extremely trying times. In a bid to help, however modestly, we continue to offer, for the second week running, an hour of respite, by providing captivating lectures and encounters every day, free of charge, via Zoom.

We invite you, the culture-loving public, to enjoy an hour of curiosity.

We wish everyone days of peace.

Diego Rivera: The Detroit Industry Murals, Detroit Institute of Arts / Lecturer: Noa Rosenberg, Curator of the Department of Modern Art

A virtual tour that will allow participants to visit the Detroit Institute of Arts and view the impressive murals painted there by Diego Rivera. We shall tour the various murals, get to know the key figures featured in them, delve into the intricate details depicted, and analyze Rivera’s distinctive style. The digital medium will both allow us to peruse the images as a whole, and to get closer to the works and discern the smallest details.
