The Detroit Industry Murals

The Detroit Industry Murals

has been designated a

National Historic Landmark

This site possesses national significance as the United State's finest modern monumental artwork devoted to industry.  Diego Rivera, a premier leader in the Mexican mural movement, painted these frescoes in 1932-1933.  Rivera's portrayal of American life on public buildings and his skilled technique directly influenced the New Deal mural programs of the 1930s and 1940s.
