The California Museum is one of Sacramento’s not-so-secret gems. Located downtown, it
offers a wealth of exhibits and events that spotlight the state’s history, accomplishments and milestones. Murales Rebeldes! L.A. Chicana/o Murals under Siege, which opened in late July and runs through Dec. 29, documents the censorship, whitewashing (literally and figuratively) and destruction of Southern California’s Chicana/o mural scene. With photographs, mural fragments and other documents, it chronicles vital Mexican-American representation. Artists include Barbara Carrasco, Willie F. Herrón III and the East Los Streetscapers.
