Top choice public art in Acapulco

While the famed Mexican art collector Dolores 'Lola' Olmedo was away on vacation in 1956, a dying Diego Rivera decided to pep up the entrance to the villa of his friend, muse and love object with spectacular serpentine mosaic murals. They are quite an unexpected sight on this quiet hillside street. Plans have long been in the works to convert the house and studio into a cultural center/museum, but to no avail so far.
