Portrait of Mexico Today is one of the only intact murals painted by David Alfaro Siqueiros while he was a political exile in Los Angeles in 1932.


A riveting array of media works by Petra Cortright, Diana Thater and Wu Chi-Tsung (many in SBMA’s collection) represent how the contemporary experience of the natural world has been shaped and influenced by current media technologies.
