A VISIT WITH ZALCE, MAY 2002
I again went to see the Zalce mural in the Palacio de Gobierno. What a disappointment! Although Bellas Artes restored the mural just three years ago, it is in bad shape with a great deal of water damage. Apparently after it was restored, nobody thought to restore the leaky roof---and the rainy season is just beginning! With important and knowledgable people walking next to that priceless piece of Mexican history daily, I cannot understand why this deterioration is being permitted to continue. I will notify Bellas Artes and others, and your help could be valuable in this "project."
