ACAPULCO.- Mexican authorities are analyzing the purchase of a house with a view to the sea in Acapulco, which is owned by the heirs of collector Dolores Olmedo. The house has walls where Diego Rivera painted five murals.

"It is a house located in an extraordinary place in Acapulco, with marvelous murals, by Diego Rivera, which have been restored by experts from the Restoration Center at the Museum of Fine Arts", said to news agency EFE, Fernando Serrano Migallón from CONACULTA.

Serrano Migallón considers that the house has a “notable artistic value” due to the murals and the artistic activity that developed there before Diego Rivera died.
Serrano considers that it is viable to buy the house and convert it into a cultural center, with didactic activities, entertainment, and concerts.

"To start talking seriously with the owners of the house, three factors have to coincide: the city of Acapulco, the State of Guerrero and the CONACULTA", he explained.

The property, built in the 1940s, known as Exekatlkalli or La Casa de los Vientos (the House of the Winds, has 3.000 square meters and 544 of those are construction.

Diego Rivera was a world-famous Mexican painter, an active Communist, and husband of Frida Kahlo, 1929-1939 and 1940-1954 (her death). Rivera's large wall works in fresco helped establish the Mexican Mural Renaissance. Between 1922 and 1953, Rivera painted murals in Mexico City, Chapingo, Cuernavaca, San Francisco, Detroit, and New York City. His 1931 retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City was their second.
