THIS WEEK AT THE H | Sept. 23–30

this-week-at-the-hThis 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: Today is last day for “Gainsborough In Print.” Head upstairs in the Huntington Art Gallery to the Works on Paper Room to view three etchings by Thomas Gainsborough alongside prints pulled from Gainsborough plates made and reworked by others.

On Wednesday evening at 7:30 p.m., we present “Entrepreneurs of the New Deal.” While the New Deal is remembered as a time of government bureaucrats, the most transformative programs were steered by business leaders whose entrepreneurship made the postwar boom possible. Louis Hyman, assistant professor of history at the ILR School of Cornell University, discusses the important lessons of this “other” New Deal. Reservations are required. THIS EVENT IS SOLD OUT.

Opening Saturday in the Boone Gallery is the much-anticipated “Face to Face: Flanders, Florence, and Renaissance Painting,” the first exhibition in the United States to look at the ways Flemish artists paved the way for the Italian Renaissance.

Saturday is also the first day to view “Crossing the Alps: Artistic Exchange and the Printed Image in Renaissance Europe” in the Works on Paper Room of the Huntington Art Gallery. This small show is being presented in conjunction with “Face to Face” and will feature a selection of European prints and books.

And to round out your Huntington Saturday, we invite you to our Ranch Open House, from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Self-tour The Huntington’s urban agriculture site and take home some fresh ideas for sustainable gardening. General admission. Cancelled in the event of rain.

For information on events that require registration and/or additional fees, please check out the calendar on The Huntington’s website.
