New Mural Tongva: Still Here Unveiling at AGCC

May 2
4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Public Unveiling, May 2nd, 4:30pm – 5:30pm at Angels Gate Cultural Center

San Pedro, CA – Angels Gate Cultural Center (AGCC), in partnership with AQMN Mural CO, and San Pedro High School Students is pleased to announce a new mural, Tongva: Still Here. A public unveiling on Tuesday, May 2nd, from 4:30pm – 5:30pm at Angels Gate Cultural Center of this large-scale artwork marks the conclusion of an eight-week professional development workshop for San Pedro High School Students, AGCC Teen Mural Club.

Tongva: Still Here is the culmination of the Center’s first Teen Mural Club, which included eight weeks of professional training, planning, and painting by San Pedro High School Students under the mentorship of AQMNI Mural CO. The Teen Mural Club Students felt an immediate connection to the Tongva culture that still inhabits San Pedro. This connection sparked their interest and imagination, and they were eager to learn more about the tribe’s rich local history and traditions. Teen Mural Club Students met with the local native community members, who shared their lived experience and insights on Tongva and indigenous culture in order to plan their mural.

This piece of public art is an impactful representation of the Tongva’s enduring legacy and the continued presence of their spirit in modern-day San Pedro at Angels Gate Cultural Center. Its many details and allusions to Tongva traditions and practices serve as powerful reminders of the tribe’s rich cultural heritage and their ongoing contribution to the community.

AGCC invites the public to celebrate the power of education, community, and the enduring spirit of the Tongva culture as they present the completed mural for the first time to the public. Please join AGCC for the unveiling of their newest mural, Tongva: Still Here created by the Teen Mural Club at Angels Gate Cultural Center on Tuesday, May 2nd, from 4:30pm – 5:30pm in the Battery Leary-Merriam at Angels Gate Cultural Center, located at 3601 S. Gaffey St. San Pedro, CA 90731.
Tongva: Still Here will remain on display for the public during park hours daily in perpetuity at Angels Gate Cultural Center.
This event and the Teen Mural Club are sponsored and hosted by Angels Gate Cultural Center, with additional support from the California Arts Council.
