The Elverhøj Museum of History and Art, in coordination with its ongoing “Revelations” multi-sensory art exhibit, will present “Stories at Sunset,” featuring a glimpse into the Samala language, presented by Santa Ynez Chumash member Kathleen Marshall from 7-9 p.m. Friday, June 3.

The presentation is one in a series of events surrounding “Revelations: Culture and Human Landscape of the Central Coast,” which celebrates the treasures of the community and runs through Aug. 14.

Visitors are encouraged to sip and savor local flavors while reveling in dialog and story with portrait subjects.

Chumash siblings Marshall and Mike Lopez, a member of the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians’ Business Committee, and Marshall were selected take part in the exhibit, which was created by artist Holli Harmon.

According to a statement from the Elverhøj Museum, “Revelations” is a “multifaceted approach to portraiture that begins a portal to not only their appearance but to their history and hopes for the future.”

On June 3, Marshall will introduce visitors to the Samala language through storytelling, and she will discuss her life experience and Chumash culture.

The Elverhøj Museum is located at 1624 Elverhoy Way in Solvang, and its regular hours are from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday.

Mike Traphagen is a public relations specialist for the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
