Harvard Travels to Mexico – Part Three

Part Three.  The imagery and artistic talent of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera is widely known, and we were privileged to visit remarkable examples of their work, including their home, La Casa Azul.

Mexican Art by Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera was at the center of our third day. Our tour began in Chapultepec Park at the Cárcamo de Dolores where a monument to the control of the Lerma River by Mexican scientists presents two of Rivera’s creations. An outdoor sculpture of Tlaloc and the interior mural “Agua, el origen de la vida” (Water, source of life) focused our attention and awe. Professor María Luisa Parra guided us through Frida Kahlo’s Casa Azul later in the day.
