DETROIT (AP) -- The Detroit Institute of Arts is planning an exhibition that focuses on the year the celebrated Mexican artists Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo spent in the city.

Between April 1932 and March 1933, Rivera created the famed Detroit Industry murals on the walls of a courtyard at the Detroit museum.
And his wife was busy during that time as well.

In a news release Monday, the DIA says most of the works Kahlo created in Detroit will be shown for the first time in the city.

The show is scheduled to run from March 15, 2015, to July 12, 2015.
In all, 80 artworks will be featured in the exhibition, including Rivera's preparatory drawings for the Detroit Industry murals.

Crain's Detroit Business first reported about the planned show.
