Off The Wall: Works On Canvas By Prominent Muralists

This talk will take a look at the lives and careers of well-known muralist painters Diego Rivera, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Jose Clemente Orozco and Thomas Hart Benton. Their works as muralists will be compared to those painted off the wall, considering how this change in medium and scale impacts their style and subject.

Leah Cluff is a professor of Art History at MiraCosta College. She holds a PhD in Art History, Theory and Criticism from UC San Diego. Leah’s academic research focuses on contemporary Native American and First Nations art.
