\"La Carreta,\" a lithograph created in the 1940s by American-Mexican artist Pablo O'Higgins, is among the works now showing at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts.

By Jennifer Napier-Pearce

Salt Lake City, Utah – Pablo O'Higgins is well-known in Mexico as a painter devoted to portraying images "of the people." But few know he grew up as Paul Higgins, the son of one of the attorneys who prosecuted legendary labor figure Joe Hill. How did a blond-haired, blue-eyed kid from Salt Lake City become an ardent supporter of revolutionary politics and a celebrated Mexican muralist? Guest host Jennifer Napier-Pearce talks with author Susan Vogel about O'Higgins' transformation and his legacy.

The work of Pablo O'Higgins is on display at the Utah Museum of Fine Arts at the University of Utah. It continues through September 19th. For more information, click here or call 801-581-7332.
