TBT: Detroit Institute of Art's courtyard before Diego & Frida

This is what Diego Rivera saw at the Detroit Institute of Arts before he got to work. He was commissioned to do two walls. He did all four with frescoes running up to the ceiling.

What resulted is a true work of art that has stood the test of time for the past 85 years. 

Now, Diego and Frida are being honored and celebrated with 70 works of art that depict the evolution of the artists' careers. Click here for more from the DIA and to buy tickets.
