Overview

Currently a library, this building previously was the temple of the Compañía de Jesus (Company of Jesus). The impressive mural found here was painted in 1917 by the internationally renowned muralist José David Alfaro Siqueiros and Amado de la Cueva, a Tapatío painter. The mural depicts labor and rebellion. The life of the peasant worker alongside the maize and sugar cane harvest is depicted on one side, while the factory worker is evoked alongside machines and trade unions, electricity and mining. A fierce rebellion erupts where the two worlds meet in the middle of the mural. The work also shows aspects of the 1910 Revolution and Emiliano Zapata, the revolutionary.
