LAST CHANCE: This is the final week for “Maurice Merlin and the American Scene, 1930–1947,” on view in the Chandler Wing of the Scott Galleries. It is the first museum exhibition to focus on this Depression-era artist.
Thursday at 2:30 p.m. is the Second Thursday Garden Talk. In “California Wildflowers for the Home Garden,” Bart O’Brien of Rancho Santa Ana Botanical Garden will discuss how to select, grow, and care for California native annuals in the home garden. After the program, the audience is invited to self-tour the exhibition “When They Were Wild: Recapturing California’s Wildflower Heritage” in the Boone Gallery. The event is free and will be held in the Ahmanson Room of the Botanical Center.
Also on Thursday, head over to our new Tumblr to check out the newest post in Squint, the weekly image series where we feature an image of some small, obscure Huntington detail. And there’s new non-Squint content going up most other days, so be sure to stop in and see what we’re up to—and if you’re a regular Tumblr user, follow us!
COMING SOON: Next month, the Huntington-USC Institute on California and the West will launch “Form and Landscape: Southern California Edison and the Los Angeles Basin, 1940–1990,” a web-based digital exhibition bringing together authors, scholars, and artists to explore the extensive Edison photograph archive that was donated to The Huntington in 2006.
For information on events that require registration and/or additional fees, please check out the calendar on The Huntington’s website.
