The Detroit Industry fresco cycle is a series of murals painted by Mexican muralist Diego Rivera (1886 1957) as a tribute to the workers in manufacturing, the sciences, and agriculture of Detroit, Michigan, in the 1930s. Rivera completed the twenty-seven-panel work in eleven months, from April 1932 to March 1933. The fresco cycle spans four walls in Detroit Institute of Arts. It is considered the finest example of Mexican mural art in the United States, and the artist thought it the best work of his career.

About the Author:

Diego Rivera was a Marxist who believed that art belonged on public walls rather than in private galleries. He found his medium in the fresco, where paint is applied to wet plaster. Its vast size allowed him to explore grand and complex themes, which would be accessible to a large audience. In Mexico, Rivera s murals tied modern Mexican culture to its indigenous roots, revealing the ancient Indian cultures as Mexico s true heritage. Similarly, Rivera s Detroit Industry murals depict industry and technology as the indigenous culture of Detroit.
