The City of Temecula, Community Services Department, and the Temecula Valley Museum seek to support emerging artists by providing a space to showcase their craft. Each month or two, student artists will have the opportunity, facilitated by Bigfoot Graphics, to paint a mural on varying topics. For information on how to get involved, call 951-694-6450.

March 2021 – Student Artist Charlie Lively created this mural in celebration of Women’s History Month. Said Ms. Lively, “For my mural I was inspired by impactful women throughout history. I decided to go with a black and white portrait theme with a bright and vibrant background to help the women stand out. There is also a quote by each woman relating to one of their accomplishments or actions through their life. I would like to give a huge thanks to Tony at Bigfoot Art Classes, for the opportunity to create this for the community and my good friend Alyssa for helping me get this done and keeping me motivated”. Women featured on the mural include Scientist Madam Marie Curie, Civic Rights Activist Rosa Parks, Sports Legend Billie Jean King, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Student Rights Leader Malala Yousafzai.
