<p> Explore Diego Rivera's Pan Unity Mural with Mural Steward Will Maynez</p>
Tickets are not on Sale.








Come see Diego Rivera’s colossal Pan American Unity fresco mural and hear an assortment of stories about the making of the mural. This world class treasure was painted in 1940 at the Golden Gate International Exposition on Treasure Island expressly for City College of San Francisco. In 2020 the mural will be temporarily moved to SFMOMA as the star of a big exhibition on Rivera’s murals. After its stint at SFMOMA it will be installed in a new "Performing Arts Education Center" at City College to showcase the mural and to house the archive of unique materials from Rivera's two visits to San Francisco.
