Virginia Steele Scott Galleries of American Art - Expansion Project
Galleries Temporarily Closed
A portion of the Scott Galleries is currently closed for an expansion project, reopening in summer 2016. Highlights from the American art collections from the 17th to the mid-19th century will go on view in the MaryLou and George Boone Gallery in September.
Chinese Garden Phase II
If you thought it was beautiful already, just wait until you see what the future holds for Liu Fang Yuan, the Garden of Flowing Fragrance. Construction of the second phase of The Huntington’s Chinese Garden is under way. A group of 23 artisans from Suzhou, China worked with Valley Crest Landscape Companies on three new features on the west and north sides of the lake which are now open. (The south and east sides were completed in the garden’s first phase, which opened to visitors in 2008.) The new elements include a rock grotto, eloquently named Lingering Clouds Peak, and two tile-roofed buildings: the boat-shaped Waveless Boat Pavilion and the Clear and Transcendent Pavilion, the latter of which will serve as a performance space.
