There are many Rivera murals at:

If your school requires reading across the curriculum as mine does there
is text about Rivera at this site's home page.

One of those wandering-off-topic inclusions:
My students have always enjoyed the soap-opera type drama of the lives
of Frida Kahlo and Deigo Rivera. Someone gave me a biography of Louise
Nevelson which puts the three of them in one of these dramas. Five
years ago one student had to do an interdisiplinary project with her
Spanish IV class and her advanced art class. She did self portraits in
the style of Kahlo and then made a presentation to both classes about
the artist (she had to speak Spanish in the other class.) We all
learned quite a lot about things not usually presented. Her resources
were from our school media center and our small town library. From year
to year the word gets passed down to do one of the artists in this
really weird couple and where the information can be found. There's
nothing like scandolous information to get the kids thinking about the
function of art and the history from which the artists evolved!
