LAST CHANCE: We have two exhibitions closing today! “Visions of Empire” and “French Travelers to the East” will wrap up their three-month runs at the close of the day, so make sure you check those out if you’re stopping by today.
This week is supposed to be another scorcher outside, but forecast calls for far milder temperatures inside the galleries. Pinkie and Blue Boy invite you to come enjoy the air conditioning with them.
This Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. is our monthly Ranch Open House. Check out our summer crops! Enjoy a behind-the-scenes glimpse of The Huntington’s urban agriculture site and take home some fresh ideas for sustainable gardening. The event is free with general admission. From the Teaching Greenhouse, follows signs to the site. Do note that it will be cancelled in the event of rain—but right now, forecast says there’s 0% chance of that happening.
Also on Saturday is the opening of “Royals, Courtiers, and Confidants: Early English Portrait Drawings from The Huntington’s Art Collections.” The object labels for this exhibition, which is housed in the Works on Paper Room upstairs in the Huntington Art Gallery, are based on research performed by students at Claremont McKenna College.
For information on events that require registration and/or additional fees, please check out the calendar on The Huntington’s website.
