Four staff members to complete an in-progress project to render Pan American Unity, a 1940 monumental fresco by Diego Rivera, into a photogrammetric 3D model and finalize the public release of its digital representations.

This project will provide digital public access to Diego Rivera’s 1940 mural masterpiece, Pan American Unity. The monumental 6.7 x 22.5 meter (22 x 74 feet) 10-panel fresco is Rivera’s unified vision of art, religion, history, politics, and technology in the Americas. The project is a collaboration between City College of San Francisco, SFMOMA, Stanford Libraries and Cultural Heritage Imaging (CHI). The project will extend CHI’s existing 3D and 2D documentation work on the mural, which shows previously unseen information about the original painting technique. It will also complete public access to these digital representations, including newly uncovered surfaces of the mural, and incorporate recently finished conservation drawings and collected information. People around the world, and especially from The Americas, will be able to see for themselves Diego Rivera’s monumental vision of richly experienced human lives attained through the sharing of cultures and the unity among peoples.
