Detroit Industry North Wall, Rivera Luminary

Add to Cart








These store-flat expandable luminaries feature an adaptation of a detail of the North Wall of Diego Rivera's Detroit Industry Murals. 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 1930's. Rivera was commissioned by the DIA, with funds from Edsel Ford (the son of automaker Henry Ford), to paint these murals. Rivera studied workers at the Ford plant in nearby Dearborn to produce the murals. 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. On April 23, 2014, the Detroit Industry Murals were given National Historic Landmark Status.
