San Bernardino, California- This year, we are having a special "Express Yourself!" mural day in honor of our exhibit on the work of Ramon G. Contreras.  As a special part of the day, muralist Dan Doy Nugyen and our education division staff will be leading visitors to each create a small piece of artwork that Dan will then take and combine into a permanent mural installation of his creation here in our new Point of View gallery.  POV will feature the stories of 8 people who have lived life in our county, allowing us to not only learn more about their life experiences, but to learn more about the general history of our region in the context of their personal stories.
