Rodolfo Morales MuralOcotlan de Morelos is the hometown of Oaxacan artist Rodolfo Morales (1925-2001). Morales painted a mural which depicts the various products, industries and occupations of the area, in the council hall of Ocotlan's "Palacio Municipal," the government building. He painted the main section in 1954, and in 1980 he covered the remaining walls in the room. There is more of his work on display inside the museum that is housed in Ocotlan's former convent, just beside the church.
