Sala de Arte Público Siqueiros - Museum Mexico City - Mexico

Davíd Alfaro Siqueiros (1896-1974) was one of the big three muralists in Mexico, along with Diego Rivera and José Clemente Orozco. It was Siqueiros who declared that he wanted to make "Art for everyone! Art for the masses! Difficult art! Art like the art of all the great periods in history!" In 1969, he decided to turn his home and studio into the Sala de Arte Público Siqueiros, which he donated to the public a few days before his death. The art space contains not just works of art by Siqueiros, but also his private papers and photos. It may be a little obscure for anyone not keenly interested in Siqueiros. Note: The museum is currently closed due to renovation. It is scheduled to reopen in November 2009.
