Palace of Fine Arts (Palacio de Bellas Artes)
IWC partners with Understand Mexico to bring you a fun walking tour.
Details: There is NO place in the city (or country) where you can see the works of the three great muralists - Diego Rivera, David Alvaro Siqueiros and Jose Clemente Orozco in ONE spot except in the Palace of Fine Arts which we will be visiting on Wednesday, January 31st.
Aside from the fabulous art work, we will explore the hidden nationalistic symbols embedded in the architecture, talk about the muralist movement itself, and explain why it took over 30 years to complete this stunning Mexican Art Nouveau building.
There is currently a temporary exhibit entitled "Rojo Mexicano" which we will also have the opportunity to visit, which showcases the use of Mexican cochineal dye and its role in international art (it took the curators of this show over a year to arrange the European art loan for this exhibit which include a Van Gogh among other works) . Don't miss it - even if you can't join us!
When: Wednesday Jan 31, 10 am to 1 pm.
Where: Meeting location will be provided in a separate e-mail closer to the tour date. If you any questions please feel free to contact Lynda Martinez at mailto:email@example.com
