Museums devoted to Diego Rivera
Rivera is present in every corner of DF, thanks to the three dedicated museums and several works scattered around the city.
The ubiquitous Diego Rivera.
Mexico City is, in itself, an open air Diego Rivera museum, whose paintings can be found in the most unexpected places. But if you want to know more about the icon, founder of the Mexican muralismo, you should visit the Museo Mural de Diego Rivera (Diego Rivera's Mural Museum), which contains the mural painting "Sueño de una tarde dominical en la Alameda Central", a scene showing several important historical characters from local history. In addition to the mural, the museum offers temporary exhibitions related to the muralismo movement and contemporary art. Nowadays it is also possible to visit the Casa Estudio de Diego Rivera (Diego Rivera's Studio House), the place where he lived until his death in 1957. This is a curious building, one of the first examples of functional style, and it is basically two modules joined by a corridor. There we can see personal objects and mementos that belonged to the artist and his wife, the renowned Frida Kahlo, who was also an artist. And finally, to know even more about Diego Rivera, you can go to the Museo Diego Rivera Anahuacalli, conceived by the artist himself, where his collection of pre-Hispanic art is exhibited.
