The Temecula Valley Museum brings Christmas celebrations and customs from around the world to the Temecula Valley! This month continues the popular Second Saturday Cultural Celebration both in person and online with a Special Christmas Around The World Edition.
On SAT, DEC 11, 2021, at 11:00 am, the Museum invites guests to experience how the featured cultures from Temecula’s 2021 Second Saturday Series celebrate Christmas including: Costa Rica, Bali, Thailand, Japan, Brazil, Canada, Spain, Louisiana, Greece, and Switzerland.
Come enjoy Christmas Carols performed by Southwest Women’s Chorus, delicious food provided by Espadίn, and a special, free, art lesson provided by Bigfoot Art Classes. Guests of all ages can join Art Instructor Tony Moramarco for a fun, Christmas themed art lesson at the Temecula Valley Museum. In addition to the in-person event, guests can also access delicious recipes, activities, crafts, and cultural facts at TemeculaValleyMuseum.org.
New This Year! The Student Art Mural outside the museum will add to the festivities, as it features artist Joenell Edsel Zenobious Luma’s vision Christmas Throughout The World. Mr. Luma was asked to create a mural in honor of the museum’s Christmas Around The World event.
This stunning mural, painted by Mr. Luma and his youth contributors, Gerard J. Luma and Jon Evens Luma, features iconic structures throughout the globe, including our own Temecula Arches designed by the renowned Temecula Artist, the late Robert Morris. The mural will be displayed in Sam Hicks Monument Park (28300 Mercedes Street), adjacent to the Temecula Valley Museum throughout the month of DEC 2021. This exquisite, large, temporary mural also serves as a festive backdrop for your Holiday Selfies!
Second Saturday Cultural Celebrations are part of the Temecula Valley Museum’s educational and cultural offerings for the community, celebrating the history and heritage of the various and diverse cultures that live in the Temecula Valley. The goal of this program is to embrace diversity and celebrate contemporary life in Temecula.
