Orozco's murals
Painter Josť Clemente Orozco (1883-1949) influenced American art with size, scope and themes of Mexican modernism and social progress. In the late '20s, the artist took up residence in the United States, which served as a period of growth and modernist expansion, which resulted in a volume of work including his first commissioned mural, located in Claremont California's Pamona College. More than 100 of Orozco's studies, paintings, prints and drawings will go on exhibit March 9 at the San Diego Museum of Art, the exhibit's first stop on the tour. Along with the exhibition, the museum will host several related events such as lectures, concerts and a symposium. The museum also will offer free public tours of the show in Spanish every Sunday at 2 p.m. through May 19, when the exhibition concludes.

Now, we proudly announce yet another dynamic collaboration: in addition to being available at several San Diego area bookstores, pacific REVIEW is on the shelves at San Francisco's famed Left Coast bookseller, City Lights Bookstore. So the next time you visit this intellectual mecca ask for pacific REVIEW!
