JUST OPENED: This past Saturday saw the opening of “Royals, Courtiers, and Confidants,” a small exhibition of English portrait drawings in the Works on Paper Room upstairs in the Huntington Art Gallery. Stop in and check out these 16th– and 17th-century works—and the corresponding object labels, which come from research carried out by undergrads over at Claremont McKenna College.
Have the Olympics gotten you dreaming of all things London? While we may not have Shakespeare’s Globe, we do have a delightful garden inspired by the Bard’s works. The Shakespeare Garden features many flowers from its namesake’s works—and makes for a lovely stroll on your way to the Tea Room. (P.S. Tea Room reservations are now being accepted online!)
Come enjoy some music in Friends’ Hall this Sunday at 2 p.m. Young musicians from the Virtuoso International Flute Ensemble and the CalStateLA Symphony Orchestra/Olympia Youth Orchestra will perform classical and contemporary works in a free afternoon concert.
For information on events that require registration and/or additional fees, please check out the calendar on The Huntington’s website.
