Night and the Indian Musyeum and Rock Art Hike



Park: Antelope Valley Indian Museum SHP

Enjoy a summer evening at the Antelope Valley Indian Museum State Historic Park on Saturday, July 26th. The museum will be open from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. Event admission is $10 for adults, $5 for ages 6-16, and ages 5 and under are free (cash only).

The event will feature a hike to visit to an American Indian rock carving site on Piute Butte led by Museum Curator Peggy Ronning. This site is normally closed to park visitors, so the hike will provide a rare and unique opportunity to view it! Visitors will also have an opportunity to see the art gallery in Joshua Cottage. The Joshua Cottage exhibit features rock art-themed paintings by Jean Chernoff and Charles LaMonk in addition to paintings by museum founder H. A. Edwards.

This event will be opening night for the new “Casas Grandes Polychrome Pottery” exhibit. This is part of a series of exhibits revealing Southwest pottery that has been hidden in a State Parks warehouse in Sacramento since the 1970s. A sample of pottery from this collection can be seen on the State Parks website at www.museumcollections.parks.ca.gov.
