This Week at The H is a weekly feature here at Verso. Stop in each Monday to find out what’s happening throughout the week at The Huntington!
Today is the last day of 2012, and we’re open with extended holiday hours—10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. With the exception of tomorrow, when we are closed to ring in the new year, we’ll have those same extended hours the rest of this week.
Tomorrow also marks 150 years since the Emancipation Proclamation took effect. If you happen to wander over to the local movie theatre to catch Lincoln, keep an eye out for the telegraph office scenes. Nearly a year ago, The Huntington acquired a collection of telegrams sent and received by the very office depicted in the film. Items from this collection are currently on view in “Treasures of the Huntington Library,” located (until fall 2013) in the Erburu Wing of the Scott Galleries.
LAST CHANCE: This weekend is the final one for “A Just Cause,” our Civil War manuscript exhibition on view in the West Hall. Its final day is Monday, Jan. 7. Also wrapping up its run that day is “Alpine Skeletons,” the Marsden Hartley silverpoint exhibit.
For information on events that require registration and/or additional fees, please check out the calendar on The Huntington’s website.
