The Muckenthaler Cultural Center


Coming fall 2021, Fullerton College Art Gallery, CSU Fullerton Department of Visual Arts, The Muckenthaler Cultural Center and the Fullerton Museum Center will unite to host a series of exhibitions featuring artists with ties to the land Fullerton inhabits.  

"Land as Kin" is developed with the intention of creating a positive self-reflection that is inspired by the identity of Southern California native people, including the Tongva Tribe as well as local tribes with shared ancestry, and their relationship to the land. This multi-venue exhibit is produced in partnership with several Fullerton arts and culture institutions to reflect on art, land and indigenous perspectives. 

"The goal of presenting these bodies of work is to capture the color, sound, and feeling of family that reflects the faces of generations of native California tribal people that is compelling and contemporary by elevating everyday objects, photography, paintings, maps, flags, portraits, beadwork, and ceramics in hopes of helping people to see the connection with the land through the unseen," states Muckenthaler curator, Amy Redfeather. 

The artists featured include Gerald Clarke, Katie Dorame, Mercedes Dorame, River Garza, and Tracy Nelson, among others. Each institution's exhibit will open and close at varying dates with programming to accompany the exhibits scheduled throughout the fall.  

Fullerton College - August- December 
Cal State Fullerton - August 23- September 30 
Fullerton Museum Center - October 7- December 9
Muckenthaler Cultural Center - October 28- December 9 

The Gabrielino- Tongva Tribe has been indigenous to the Los Angeles Basin for 7,000 years. This history is well- documented through 2,800 archaeological sites, in State historical records and federal archives, and Catholic church records at San Gabriel Mission and San Fernando Mission.  

The Tongva lived in villages to the north up to Topanga Canyon in Malibu and stretched as far inland as the San Bernardino Mountains. Tongva villages extended south to Laguna Beach including the City of Fullerton, an active trading route and place of gathering for surrounding Tribes.  

The Tongva Tribe was recognized by the state of California in a Joint Resolution in 1994. Using the name given to the Tribe by colonizers, the Joint Resolution states that California "recognizes the Gabrielino-Tongva Nation as the aboriginal tribe of the Los Angeles Basin and takes great pride in recognizing the Indian inhabitants of the Los Angeles Basin and the continued existence of the Indian community." 

Carol Henke, Director of the Fullerton College Gallery said, "Fullerton is bound by city limits, but the indigenous communities that lived on these lands weren't defined by the jagged lines of cities and counties. We want to inspire people to honor the land we occupy as 'relation and not resource', as the Tongva elders taught. 'Land as Kin' is a celebration of local native artists and their artworks addressing their personal relationship to the land." Photo:FilePhoto



Electric Company Theatre Lights Up Muckenthaler Cultural Center 

As the performing arts in the U.S. leave the darkness of the pandemic years, two local arts organizations have come together to strike up a partnership: The Electric Company Theatre is now the resident theatre company of the historic Muckenthaler Cultural Center in Fullerton. The Electric Company will produce full-length plays, immersive experiences, and an intimate storytelling and concert series on the grounds and in the beautiful 1920s mansion. 

The Electric Company Theatre husband and wife Co-Artistic Directors Callie Prendiville Johnson and Brian Johnson are delighted to call The Muck their new home: "We've produced award-winning plays from Hollywood to Off-Broadway to Tijuana, and we are so excited to create a home base in our actual home of North Orange County," says Callie. Brian adds: "Our passion is creating beautiful stories in unusual places. We can't wait to share stories in unexpected locations within The Muck campus as well as bigger pieces in the amphitheatre." The Muck is famous for its live music events, visual art installations, and community partnerships. "We are thrilled to add live theatre into that mix," says Brian. 

The inaugural season will open with a preview event called "Light Up the Night" on August 24 with a toast, a guided tour of the Muck, and select performances from the upcoming season. The first full production, The Old Man and the Old Moon, a musical seafaring tale written by PigPen Theatre Company, will premiere on the south lawn of the mansion September 14, 15, 21, 22. A monthly singer-songwriter evening called "We Pick Three" (which ECT produced digitally during the pandemic) will happen in various locations throughout the property. In early 2022, a family-friendly immersive Alice in Wonderland will explore the newly planted garden, and in the summer a repertory performance of Shakespeare in Love and Romeo and Juliet will be performed on the amphitheater stage. Closing out the season will be the musical comedy The Drowsy Chaperone. Looking ahead, ECT will write and produce an original immersive play to celebrate The Muck Centennial in 2025.

The Muckenthaler Cultural Center, known affectionately as The Muck, is located at 1201 West Malvern Avenue, Fullerton, California 92833.
