Zoom May 8, 1933 - Diego Rivera completes the mural “Man at the Crossroads” at New York’s Rockefeller Center. 
Nelson Rockefeller, heir to a global economic empire, had commissioned Rivera to paint the mural, insisting in the fine print that “no controversial figures” be included. Rivera defied the capitalist, including the faces of Marx, Lenin and Trotsky and refusing to paint over them. 
Rockefeller had the mural covered, then destroyed in early 1934. Rivera recreated a smaller version, “Man, Controller of the Universe,” in Mexico City.
