The Mexican Muralist movement emerged in the 1920s following the Mexican Revolution. The political and social messages contained in these government-sponsored public art projects were inspired by the idealism of the Revolution, which emphasized Mexico's indigenous culture and history. In this course, we will examine the development of the Mexican muralist movement and the works of artists such as Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, and Jose Clemente Orozco. We will also briefly investigate the influence of the muralist movement on contemporary artistic production in the United States and Canada.
