Past Exhibitions

December 12, 2015- May 29, 2016

The sacred text Popol Vuh is a tale of the origins, traditions and history of the Quiché-Maya people. In 1931, the renowned Mexican muralist Diego Rivera produced a series of watercolors to illustrate this sacred book.

Popol Vuh: Watercolors of Diego Rivera is the first United States presentation of these 17 compelling watercolors from the collection of the Museo Casa Diego Rivera in Guanajuato, Mexico. These watercolors not only breathe life into the powerful creation story of an ancient civilization, but also provide insight into Rivera's passionate and creative vision of the pre-Hispanic world.
