Diego Rivera Escapes to the GGIE

Treasure Island Museum

Artists are imperiled by politics in more than a few countries today. And so it was back in 1940 for the Mexican muralist Diego Rivera. Both the Nazis and the communists were after him, and the FBI reported that he might be eliminated. So Rivera eagerly accepted San Francisco architect Timothly Plfueger's invitation to anchor the Art in Action program in the relative safety of the Golden Gate International Exposition.
