Museo Mural Diego Rivera Review

Diego Rivera's controversial mural Sueño de una Tarde Dominical en el Parque Alameda (Sunday Afternoon Dream in the Alameda Park) was originally painted on a lobby wall of the Hotel Del Prado in 1947–48. Its controversy grew out of Rivera's Marxist inscription, "God does not exist," which the artist later replaced with the bland "Conference of San Juan de Letrán" to placate Mexico's dominant Catholic population. The 1985 earthquake destroyed the hotel but not the mural, and this museum was built across the street from the hotel's site to house it.
