10 a.m.-5 p.m. Mon., Wed.-Sun. March 14-June 15. “Lifelines/Timelines” imaginatively explores the march of time by comparing the age of selected California juniper bonsai alongside benchmarks in the institution’s 100-year history, and with significant pieces on view in the library and art galleries. Which line of a tree’s growth corresponds to the publication of Shakespeare’s First Folio in 1623? And which line relates to Thomas Gainsborough’s majestic painting, The Blue Boy, that was done around 1770? Each of the exhibition’s five bonsai installations, located at five gallery entrances, will include an illustrated timeline and other interpretive materials – offering an entirely new perspective on The Huntington’s expansive collections and connecting dots between the arts and science. Parents should note that there is a gallery guide that includes exhibition-related activities especially for kids!
