Diego Rivera Mural

Presentation: Diego Rivera in San Francisco

with Will Maynez
Saturday, 9/12/2020
11:00 - 12:00
Virtual Library

United States

In anticipation of SFMOMA’s Diego Rivera’s America, scholar Will Maynez discusses Rivera’s trajectory in San Francisco, including those who assisted Rivera’s artistic endeavours in 1930 and in so doing the development of his last U.S. work, Pan American Unity, a decade later.

For over 23 years William Maynez has researched and lectured on Diego Rivera's Pan American Unity mural at City College of San Francisco, as well as Rivera’s other local murals. As the mural steward, he maintains the mural’s website and writes its newsletter. He has written a one-act Interview with Frida and has just finished a play, Rapsodia en Azul: An American in Mexico, about a 1935 Mexico City party for George Gershwin. He currently serves on various committees surrounding the 2020 SFMOMA-CCSF collaboration.
