Custom designed for the Detroit Institute of Arts!
This metal button features a detail of the the furnace in the Production and Manufacture of Engine and Transmission from the North Wall Automotive Panel of the Detroit Institute of Arts Detroit Industry mural by Diego Rivera. The 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 nine months, from July 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.
