The City of Temecula Community Services Department and the Temecula Valley Museum exhibit the latest Emerging Artist Mural honoring Native American Heritage Month in Sam Hicks Monument Park (28300 Mercedes Street).
This mural was painted by the students of Chámmakilawish Pechanga School, designed by artist Gerry Ceja, led by Principal Andrew Maisel, and Popáahaylowi third-grade teacher Amalika Jackson. The title of this mural is Cham-míx Túu'qat, Chamténg'al-la: Our Plants - Our Medicine. Youth of all ages contributed to this piece to artistically represent plants as a resource to the ‘Atáaxum (people).
The mural will be officially unveiled on WED, NOV 8, 2023 at 5:00 pm. The public is welcome to join the school faculty, students, and their families to celebrate this new art piece and enjoy free refreshments. Throughout the month of NOV 2023, the museum recognizes Native American Heritage Month with self-guided activities in the second-floor Art & Education Room.
