Read the following two articles and watch the video about David Alfaro Siqueiros, who made an impact on many American artists (including Rosenquist).
In your comments, choose and discuss two from the following four questions:
1. What is the most interesting aspect to you about the creation of this Siqueiros mural?
2. What are the most important aspects to you about the social and historic context?
3. How did Siqueiros and this mural influence other artists?
4. Do you see a connection with Rosenqist’s F-111? How do these works differ?
In your sketchbook, do a Siqueiros inspired drawing that is relevant to an issue you care about. Work for an hour and mark the time on the back.
