Camino de Arte

Camino de Arte, a hallway on the third floor of Building B houses part of the Morton College Art Collection.

The central exhibit is a reproduction of two segments of Diego Rivera’s Detroit Industry Murals that depict the working conditions at the Ford auto plant in Dearborn, Michigan through Rivera’s eyes.

The Latin American print collection includes original prints and drawings by José Luis Cuevas, Javier Arévalo, Jesus Raphael Soto, Irma Palacios, Roberto Fabelo, José Francisco Borges and Roberto Matta.

A photographic essay and life-size wall graphics of the doors of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico by Chicago artist David Bower gives Camino de Arte a sense of place.

A series of photo emulsion tiles that include the works of Diego Rivera, Frida Kahlo, David Alfaro Siqueiros and José Clemente Orozco are set in the wall in the sitting area.
