Mr. Monkey and I recently had a wonderful time visiting family in Mexico City. Believe it or not, the artistic highlight of the trip was found at the Ministry of Education where the walls on all 3 levels facing the 2 central courtyards are covered in Diego Rivera murals. You can see that the ceilings were also painted which really helps to transport you into Diego Rivera's world. There is a strong and active staff keeping the building in tip top shape. You can see a woman was cleaning the bannister. Her uniform matches Mr. Rivera's red perfectly and the sunlight through the arches mirrors the scalloped ceiling. Diego Rivera's art always makes me think about the power of people without power. His art is a beautiful example of government supporting artists to tell the story of the people even if it doesn't show the government in a positive light. In fact in some of the sections of the mural below you can see Mr. Rivera making fun of the wealthy and the politicians. Notice the small Statue of Liberty. It's as if they dine on freedom and the bank vault is music to their ears as they read what their latest profits are from the ticker tape that is woven across the dinner table. On a lighter note you can also play a game of Where's Waldo, except you'll have to look for me, Mr. Monkey, and most importantly revolutionary Frida.
