labor at the table - Rivera Court

    Newer Older

    Detroit Industry by Diego Rivera is a cycle of frescoes that surround an indoor courtyard at the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA). It depicts industry in Detroit and the balance between labor and management. Edsel Ford was the benefactor and paid for the project. The DIA has more information regarding this series of frescoes on its web site.

    This is my favorite piece of art for no particular reason than it speaks to me.
