City College filed a cross-complaint to the San Francisco Superior Court on Thursday in response to a lawsuit initiated by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art in early October.
Painting students at the time, Barbara Bolls-Guillory, Itzli Ceja and Xiaoyu Luo painted the Frida Kahlo panel together. The three benefitted from the workshop in a multitude of ways, from the community aspect to the technical skills learned.
Displaying more than 150 of Rivera’s works, the exhibit maps the artist’s influence on creating Mexican and American identities.
Lots of unanswered questions exist around both the date of return of the mural back to City College and storage logistics while waiting for the much anticipated Diego Rivera Theater to be built.
The Diego Rivera Pan American Unity Mural is officially en route to its new home for the next few years: The SFMOMA.
Throughout the years, San Franciscans voted to fund a new Diego Rivera Theater through an $845 million state bond measure and the school received its complete funds in 2020. Many students, faculty, and staff have long awaited its completion.
