This event has been rescheduled from its original date to June 1.

How did the philosophies that Diego Rivera held connect to global labor movements? What did it mean for women to be fighting for workers’ rights?

Join us for a free discussion with Laura Pratt (she/her), executive assistant to the chief curator, as she dives into a conversation surrounding gender, political activism, and global identity. In connection with our exhibition Diego Rivera’s America, Laura will speak on Elsie Driggs’s work Blast Furnaces in our permanent collection. She’ll discuss the connection between Diego Rivera’s labor activism and early 20th-century women-led political movements. This is an excellent chance to consider how other communities interacted with Rivera’s writings and philosophies.

Free, no tickets required.
