The Muck presents newly completed sculpture garden

FULLERTON, CALIF.- The Muckenthaler Cultural Center invites the public to its newly completed outdoor sculpture garden. The sculpture garden is free and open to the public. Visitors can roam the center's 8.5 acres grounds and take a self-guided tour with an interactive, online map, and learn about the featured artists on The Muck's website.

The center began the sculpture garden in May with "Godot" by local sculptor Bret Price as a way to allow the public safe access to art during the Covid-19 crisis. Price also installed the final piece in the sculpture garden, large-scale metal sculpture "Happenstance."

The Muck's outdoor artwork also includes work by Jimmy Centeno, Sofia Enriquez, Katherine England, and Daniel Miller, as well as a collection of eight Papa New Guinea Story Poles on long term loan from the Bowers Museum in Santa Ana.

The Muck's mission is to celebrate the human spirit through the arts.

Walter and Adella Muckenthaler built the 18 room mansion in 1924 atop this hill in Fullerton and it served as the center of their citrus and nut farming business, as well as their family home, for more than four decades.

In 1965, their son Harold Muckenthaler donated the mansion and the surrounding 8.5 acres to the city with the proviso that his childhood home be used to provide the public with experiences that stimulate creativity and imagination, while conserving the heritage and architecture of the estate.

And in 1999, The Muckenthaler Mansion received designation by the National Registry of Historic places.

Today, though the City of Fullerton maintains ownership of the property, it is managed by The Muckenthaler Cultural Center Foundation and its elected Board of Directors. The City and the Muck enjoy a strong spirit of cooperation in the best interest of our mutual constituents.

The Muck hosts nearly 100 events each year. These include concerts in its extraordinary outdoor amphitheatre, and the indoor cabaret space. That also includes five free-to-the-community Cultural Festivals, Art gallery exhibits, a lecture series, and occasional film events.
