The Autry has a new gallery space that will be home to “California Continued,” which will explore various relationships between people and the state’s environment. The core, permanent exhibit is “Human Nature,” which looks at ecological ideas through four stories: Salmon, Fire, Desert, and Plants as Food and Medicine. More than 50 native plant species will reside in the ethnobotanical “Human Nature Garden,” and visitors can learn about their historic and current uses. “California Roadtrip” is a the six-hour, dual projection film that provides a scenic virtual journey around the Golden State. The temporary exhibit “The Life and Work of Mabel McKay,” spotlights the legacy of this prominent Pomo basket-weaver and healer, and it represents Autry’s first-ever solo show dedicated to a Native American woman’s life and work. You’ll be seeing California in a different way after seeing “California Continued.”
