The editorial categories are research topics that have guided researchers during the recovery phase and continue to be the impetus behind the Documents Project’s digital archive and the Critical Documents book series. Developed by the project’s Editorial Board, each of the teams analyzed this framework and adapted it to their local contexts in developing their research objectives and work plans during the Recovery Phase.

This article reprints a report published in Yucatán Gráfico magazine that describes recent activities of the local visual arts milieu. Following the creation of the Escuela de Bellas Artes [School of Fine Arts] in the state of Yucatán by the constitutionalist government, preparations are now under way for an exhibition of works by students, including “revolutionary frescos by Miguel Ángel Fernández.”
General Salvador Alvarado, the constitutionalist governor of the state of Yucatán, promoted the creation of visual artworks as part of his administration’s program. According to the writer of the article, art is “a testimony to, and a symbol of the moral value of human beings” to which that area is entitled. It is interesting to note that the works to be exhibited in a few days include some “revolutionary frescoes” by Miguel Ángel Fernández, which shows that artists of the period were already familiar with the idea of painting murals that reference the 1910 Revolution.
