Diego Rivera El Arsenal

CLAS Summer Institute for Teachers
"Six Degrees of Diego Rivera"
Tuesday, July 6, 2010

With Diego Rivera, six degrees of separation can easily take you from Picasso to Stalin, from Cárdenas to Rockefeller. He was a man at the center of a tumultuous era in Mexican art and politics. In this workshop we will take a closer look at post-revolutionary Mexico through the lives of a few of the people who intersected with Rivera: Lázaro Cárdenas, Tina Modotti, Frida Kahlo and Leon Trotsky.

Speakers include: Alex Saragoza, UC Berkeley; John Zarobell, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Bertrand Patenaude, Stanford University; Patricia Albers, San Francisco State University; and Will Maynez, City College of San Francisco.

The institute is free and open to all educators. Applications are available online or by calling Jean Spencer at 510-642-2162.

Tuesday, July 6, 2010, 8:45 am - 5:00 pm
