Rivera's Detroit Murals

I am excited to announce that construction on my third three-dimensional model is well underway.  For this model, I am recreating Diego Rivera's famous Detroit murals, which includes four walls of imagery.  For this will have to construct a virtual room, which will prove to be a challenge and I hope to have it completed before the semster ends.

The Trials of SketchUp

After experimenting with photomatch multiple times, I realized it may not be the best method for assembling this venue because it would not show the details of the side panels as accurately as I had hoped.  So, I started over and began building it from scratch.  I hope to facet photos of the panels onto the walls once I build the arches along the ceiling that frame the mural.

A Mural of Many Names

One wouldn't think that when searching for images that a singular word could make a difference in the search results---but it does.  Mexico of Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow was how I first learned the name of Diego Rivera's mural in the Palacio Nacional of Mexico City.  However, my results in ArtStor were quite limited with that title. So I tried "Diego Rivera" which brought an overwhelming number of results and then I added the dates of the mural's construction to the search bar.
