Just this past weekend, we opened a new art exhibition over in the Chandler Wing of the Virginia Steele Scott Galleries of American Art. “Roger Medearis: His Regionalism” runs through Sept. 17 and features works donated to The Huntington, a painting borrowed from the Smithsonian, and loans from private collections.
This year’s summer solstice happens this Wednesday here in the Northern Hemisphere, so come on over and enjoy the sunshine, fresh air, and bird sounds on this longest day of the year.
Join us Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. for a Ranch Open House. With your general admission, you can enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour of The Huntington’s urban agriculture site and take home some fresh ideas for sustainable gardening. From the Teaching Greenhouse, follow signs to the site. This event will be cancelled in the event of rain.
LAST CHANCE: This weekend is the last for “Al Martinez: Bard of L.A.” over in the West Hall of the Library. The exhibition looks at the career of this major Los Angeles journalist through letters, photos, columns, and memorabilia from The Huntington’s own holdings and other items on loan for the show. The exhibition closes Monday, so hustle over!
For information on events that require registration and/or additional fees, please check out the calendar on The Huntington’s website.
