anikarenina asks Is your cultural institution incendiary?
I assume that’s a reference to the incendiary art of Diego Rivera. The Detroit Institute of Arts is home to one of the most famous collection of Diego Rivera murals. The Diego Rivera Web Museum writes that:
Diego Rivera’s legacy to modern mexican art was decisive in murals and canvas; he was a revolutionary painter looking to take art to the big public, to streets and buildings, managing a precise, direct, and realist style, full of social content.
