Description

Detroit Industry, Rivera Court, Detroit Institute of Arts

Detroit Industry fresco cycle was conceived by Mexican muralist Diego Rivera (1886–1957) as a tribute to the city's manufacturing base and labor force of the 1930s. Rivera completed the twenty-seven panel work in eleven months, from April 1932 to March 1933. 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.

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.

This application explores the murals via a guided tour that explores the major themes of the murals, such as the process of creating them, their symbolism, or the prophetic message they express; or by exploring the murals on their own, using a three-dimensional graphical interface to freely move between walls and preview stops before playing them.

Great app guide for an exquisite work

I first came across this app by borrowing an iPad in Rivera Court at the DIA. The high production value impressed me, and I'm very glad to now have access to it anytime on my own iPad. It brings additional insight to my favorite work at the DIA. But as great as the app is, it's obviously no substitute for a visit to the DIA and Rivera Court. It's spectacular!
