Antiguo Colegio De San Ildefonso

Yesterday I treked a few miles to the museum Antiguo Colegio De San Ildefonso. Located near the nation's cathedral, the museum is known for it's modern Mexican art. But the walls and murals are what attracted me. Art from the great muralists of the 1920's come to life in the courtyards and stairways of the museums. Many of them deal with the inequities of Cafe Society in a way that makes them very relevant to today's world.
