The City of Temecula, Community Services Department, Arts & Culture Division, and the Temecula Valley Museum announce a new temporary mural as part of the Temecula Mural Project in Sam Hicks Monument Park (28300 Mercedes Street). The Temecula Mural Project seeks to support emerging artists by providing a space to showcase their craft. Artists have the opportunity to paint temporary murals on varying topics facilitated by Bigfoot Graphics.
The JAN – FEB 2024 mural celebrated the Lunar New Year, created by the students of National Charity League Temecula Murrieta Chapter. This mural is titled Year of the Dragon and was created by several local High School seniors from the National Charity League including Ayva Scarth, Lauren Rhee, Maya Fitzpatrick, Charys Hong, Avery Steele, and Hunter Stackpole.
For the past several years, these young artists have donated their time to help many philanthropies in the local area. They are proud to present this painting as a token of their friendship and devotion to helping others.
The mural will be officially unveiled on WED, FEB 7, 2024 at 5:00 pm. The public is welcome to join the artists and their families to celebrate this new art piece and enjoy free refreshments. This mural will be on display until the end of FEB 2024 in Sam Hicks Monument Park.
The museum will also celebrate Lunar New Year through facts and free crafts in the museum’s Art and Education Room. All are welcome! For more information, please call 951-694-6450.
