Charles Kassler, 1934

Pastoral California

Location 1 MapFullerton Union High School campus
Plummer Auditorium
201 E Chapman Ave
Fullerton, CA 92832

  • Fullerton’s oldest extant mural
  • Commissioned during the Great Depression before the official launch of the Federal Work Projects Administration
  • Was deemed “vulgar” and “inappropriate” by the High School District and Junior College Board of Trustees in 1939 and ordered painted over
  • Remained covered until 1997, when it was restored by community volunteers
  • Preservation remarkable due to fresco technique employed by Kassler – minimum restoration was needed
