As many of you know, Summerfest has been an open and free event for its entire 12 year history. Unfortunately, our expenses have increased this year as we learn to operate in a post-COVID environment. In addition to increased expenses we are currently forced to limit entry to the event. As a result, the general admission revenue will be used to help offset the costs associated with ensuring that Summerfest is a safe event for for as many families as possible.

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
