The Wildling is proud to announce an exciting new permanent feature at the museum. Beginning on July 19, artist John Iwerks has been hard at work creating a mural depicting a Valley Oak habitat – one of the most iconic natural features of the Santa Ynez Valley. Amidst the tree will be a variety of local animals – mule deer, owls, magpies, red-tailed hawks and much more. The eight by 10-foot mural will be a permanent feature of the second floor gallery and launches a new endeavor to create a gallery that focuses on the Santa Barbara region.
