The Mexican Museum announces the appointment of Guadalupe Rivera Marin, daughter of renowned Mexican artist Diego Rivera, to the Museum’s Arts and Letters Council. Rivera Marin will serve as an honorary co-chair with acclaimed actor, director and producer Edward James Olmos. Besides being an author and lecturer, Rivera Marin is also the founder and board chair of the Diego Rivera Foundation.
Andrew Kluger, The Mexican Museum’s board chairman, met with Rivera Marin during his trip to Mexico in June. During this meeting, Rivera Marin expressed her unwavering support for the Museum, which is the premier West Coast museum of Mexican, Mexican-American, Chicano, Latin American and Latino art, culture and heritage.
“I had the tremendous privilege and pleasure of meeting with Guadalupe Rivera Marin, where she expressed great interest in supporting the new Museum home. This includes leading the drive to honor the work of her famous father in our future facility,” said Kluger. “We are deeply honored that she has agreed to serve as co-chair of the Arts and Letters Council with Edward James Olmos, as well as becoming an honorary member of our Board of Trustees.”
On Monday, Sept. 22, Rivera Marin will join Ann Rockefeller Roberts, author, philanthropist, and daughter of Nelson A. Rockefeller, and Dr. Andrés Roemer, Consul General of Mexico in San Francisco, in being honored at a VIP cocktail reception and fundraiser hosted by The Mexican Museum Capital Committee, the Museum’s Board of Trustees, and Millennium Partners. Members of the media are invited to attend.
“Special guests and Builders’ Society members at this event will also be treated to an exclusive preview of the design concept for our new Museum home,” said Kluger.
The VIP cocktail reception and fundraiser, which will take place from 6-8 p.m. at the Four Seasons Hotel in San Francisco, will provide a unique opportunity for individuals to join the prestigious Builders’ Society of The Mexican Museum. By pledging $365, Builders’ Society members will have their name listed on a prominent wall of the new museum facility.
