Virtual Third Thursday Speaker Series: Rivera's Detroit Industry Murals

September 16 2021 | 6:30pm to 7:30pm

In honor of the Detroit Historical Society’s centennial anniversary, our upcoming Third Thursday Speaker Series events will focus on Detroit stories from the past that still impact us today. Each month's discussion will bring a contemporary perspective to a different decade of the last hundred years!

For our September conversation, explore the radical roots of labor and art as we discuss Diego Rivera's Detroit Industry Murals in the Detroit Institute of Arts with Gavin Strassel from the Walter Reuther Library and muralist Elton Monroy Duran. Join us to discover the historical and social background behind Detroit's most famous paintings.
