What's On

Huntington President Karen Lawrence

Realizing a Dream Deferred

Message from President Karen R. Lawrence

For more than 20 years, the issue of providing housing for The Huntington’s research fellows has been an ongoing topic of conversation: While we have been able to offer scholars prestigious long- and short-term fellowships, we have not been able to offer them places to stay. And that, it turns out, has kept some of them from accepting fellowships.

Reflecting on Black Artistic Influence in California

During the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and ’60s, California was an important site of African American creativity, even in the face of intense discrimination. Black enclaves emerged as places where African American leaders, activists, writers, performers, and visual artists could build community and make professional connections.

The Huntington Commissions Artist Mineo Mizuno for Monumental Outdoor Sculpture

The Huntington has commissioned California-based Japanese American artist Mineo Mizuno to create a site-specific sculpture titled Homage to Nature. The monumental work, measuring approximately 16' x 12' x 13', will be installed in an area known as the Stroll Garden, just to the north of the Munger Research Center. Homage to Nature will be unveiled on May 25, 2024, and will remain on view for five years.
