Stanford Libraries is proud to announce a new Spotlight exhibit: Diego Rivera's San Francisco Masterpiece - Virtual Preservation of "Pan American Unity". The exhibit is devoted to rich scientific imaging of Diego Rivera's 1940 mural Unión de la Expresión Artistica del Norte y Sur de este Continente (The Marriage of the Artistic Expression of the North and of the South on this Continent), also known as Pan American Unity. It highlights 3D photgrammetric documentation of the mural created by Cultural Heritage Imaging as part of an arrangement between City College of San Franscisco and SFMOMA to display the mural at SFMOMA from 2021 to 2023. This exhibit takes advantage of both the International Image Interoperability Framework (IIIF) and the Mirador viewer to allow users to explore the mural's colors and surface textures, the progress of the work as it was created, and work done by SFMOMA and Site & Studio Conservation to describe the condition of the mural.
