In 1931, the renowned Mexican muralist Diego Rivera signed an American contract to produce a series of watercolors that would illustrate the first English translation of the sacred Mayan book, Popol Vuh. Faced with several obstacles and the Great Depression, this project was never achieved. Nevertheless, Rivera completed 24 beautifully colored, highly stylized watercolors firmly rooted in the Mayan tradition that he knew and
admired.

In this multimedia presentation, Dr. Gloria Arjona delves into the Mayan cosmovision presented in the Popol Vuh, as well as Diego Rivera's approach to this important sacred text. Dr. Arjona will also sing songs in Mayan, Nahuatl, and Spanish, related to the ancient and contemporary Mayan peoples of Mexico and Central America..
