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!
LAST CHANCE: This is the last full week to see “Gainsborough In Print: Selections from The Huntington’s Art Collections.” You can find this small exhibition in the Works on Paper Room upstairs in the Huntington Art Gallery. Its last day is next Monday, Sept. 23.
Wednesday afternoon from 1 to 3 p.m. is our weekly live performance of traditional Chinese music in the Garden of Flowing Fragrance. A different solo musician performs each week, playing unamplified melodies on classical instruments including the dizi, sheng, pipa, erhu, and zheng. Listening is free with general admission.
Thursday evening at 7:30 p.m. in the Ahmanson Room of the Botanical Center, we present “The Life and Times of Junípero Serra in Borderlands Perspective,” a free lecture by David Hurst Thomas of the American Museum of Natural History. In this talk, Thomas compares Father Serra’s missionary practices with those of his predecessors in the American Southwest, Texas, and Spanish Florida and examines the way in which he accommodated his missions to the uniquely Californian native communities. The program is co-sponsored by the Academy of American Franciscan History. Reservations are required. THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT.
For information on events that require registration and/or additional fees, please check out the calendar on The Huntington’s website.
