Muralist Movement

Since I love monumental drawings I am particularly drawn to the Mexican Murals.  On the way to the Belles Artes Museo we saw the below mural. I am not sure the message or the artist, but the pieces does a great job of expressing anger and frustration. The drawing is 3 stories tall and interestingly the broken gun is on the corner of the building. It was cool to see a modern day mural right before we saw the works of Diego, Camarena, and Siqueiros. The Muralist movement started in the 1920's and was a powerful way to make a political statement.
