Art Exhibit at the Palacio de Bellas Artes: Pinta la Revolución

Watercolor sketch for a ballet costume by Diego Rivera (1931)

You only have until May 7 to see the top notch exhibit of art inspired and influenced by the Mexican Revolution, currently on view at the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City.
This must-see show includes works by some big names in Mexican art history like Rivera, Kahlo, Tamayo, Orozco and Siquieros (whose early watercolor scenes of brothels are like nothing you've seen of his before), and many other lesser-known artists that you will be glad to know. I highly recommend this show.

It was a great exhibit. We were lucky to have seen it. And on the top floor (above the exhibit) is a very interesting exhibit of modern Mexican architecture. Not to be missed if you are in Bellas Artes.
