We were very disappointed to find that the Diego Rivera paintings have all been permanently moved to the city of Orizaba

This is an art gallery ONLY It clearly does not have anything to do with Diego Rivera. Interesting exhibit about how we are raping the land. Photos mostly. Don't expect to see see ANY Riveras
