A day at the DIA

I spent the day at the DIA (Detroit Institute of Arts) today. It was a perfect day for being inside - rainy and grey - and I happily wandered the galleries alone, lingering, or not, as I pleased.
It was a privilege to be able to spend the whole day this way, even though so many hours on my feet were exhausting.  I found it necessary to sit on the benches and rest every so often - like the old  person I am becoming.

Here are some photos I took of Diego Rivera's "Detroit Industry" mural:

In this detail I'm wondering why the woman doesn't have a lunchbox. My mom always took one to her factory job.
