First two chapters of The Mexican Muralists

Please read the first two chapters of The Mexican Muralists and begin posting on that by next Wednesday. We are now beginning to shift our attention a little bit away from literature and more toward visual art. As you begin to investigate these chapters pay close attention to how the themes in the paintings parallel the work of Steinbeck and Odets. Also, pay attention to why these painters used murals as their primary form of expression and try to pay attention to how they made this medium work for them and carry their themes.
