World Monuments Fund Presents

Thirty Years in Mexico

After a devastating earthquake struck Mexico City in 1985, World Monuments Fund partnered with local institutions to carry out the restoration of three important modern mural cycles by Diego Rivera and José Clemente Orozco that had been seriously damaged. Since that first project, we have been involved with over fifty sites spanning seventeen Mexican states, and ranging from Mayan ruins to mission churches, Baroque cities to modern sculptures. The selection of projects featured here summarizes over thirty years of WMF’s strong and continuing commitment to Mexican heritage.
