The Palace of Fine Arts



REVIEW

The Palace of Fine Arts, thought as the greatest representation of culture in Mexico, currently offers diverse artistic activities, among which stand out the seasons presented by the most important groups from the National Institute of Fine Arts, such as the National Symphonic Orchestra, the National Dance Company, the National Opera Company, the National Theatre Company among others.  The performance hall of this theatre (forum) has capacity for 1,800 spectators and a stage of 24 meters long. The beautiful glass mosaic curtain, made by the Tiffany Studio in New York with more than a million of pieces of opalescent glass representing a wonderful view of the Valley of Mexico, stands out in a particular way. Among the works of art that are kept within the Palace, the visitor can find the murals painted by Diego Rivera, José Clemente Orozco, David Alfaro Siqueiros, Rufino Tamayo, Roberto Montenegro, Manuel Rodríguez Lozano and Jorge González Camarena. These paintings are not stock-still works, but they keep a dynamic constantly related to national and universal history. All these works are part of the Palace of Fine Arts Museum, where, frequently, temporary exhibits of national and international renown are offered.
