Now that we’re on summer hours, you can enjoy The Huntington today and every day (except Tuesdays) from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Well, until Labor Day. Then we go back to regular hours.
Thursday afternoon at 2:30, we have our Second Thursday Garden Talk and Plant Sale. Nurseryman and plant breeder John Schoustra will present “Daylilies: The Next Generation.” Over the past decade, daylily breeders have developed a new generation of disease resistant, reblooming varieties. Schoustra will discuss these new varieties and how they have been used to solve many landscape problems, from soil erosion to wildfire prevention, while providing attractive foliage and flowers. This free talk will be in Friends’ Hall. A plant sale follows the talk.
Opening Saturday in the Chandler Wing of the Virginia Steele Scott Galleries of American Art is “Roger Medearis: His Regionalism.” This special exhibition, which runs through September 17, features 36 works by the American painter. You can download the gallery guide here.
This Sunday is Father’s Day, so bring Dad on over to take a stroll through the jungle garden, see the Gutenberg Bible in its new temporary home, check out the camera obscura in the “Beautiful Science” exhibition, and grab a tasty dim sum sampler over at the Chinese Garden Tea House in the Garden of Flowing Fragrance.
For information on events that require registration and/or additional fees, please check out the calendar on The Huntington’s website.
