Guadalupe Rivera, Daughter of Diego Rivera, speaking Sunday & Monday Nights in NE &SW Pdx

Two PDX Events for Guadalupe Rivera!!
(English and Spanish)
Dr. Guadalupe Rivera Marín is the founder and
board chair of the Diego Rivera Foundation, a former member of the Mexican
congress and diplomatic corps, and a passionate advocate for
public art.

Her father carried a pistol, was Mexico's leading
Communist and the world's best-known muralist. Her mother was an
avant garde novelist. Her home was filled with people such as artist
Frida Kahlo, revolutionary and political refugee Leon Trotsky,
movie star Paulette Goddard, and photographer and Stalinist spy Tina
Modotti.

In her first Portland visit, she will discuss her
childhood in the Rivera household as captured in her new book,

She will also discuss the importance of public art in giving
voice to the powerless and creating social change.
