Geographies of Wonder Pt. 2: Evolution of the National Park Idea 1933–2016

The Huntington Library continues to celebrate the centennial of the U.S. National Park Service in this second of two consecutive exhibitions that focus upon the critical role that national parks have played in American history. Drawing upon nearly 100 items gathered from the Huntington’s holdings as well as from various private collections, “Geographies of Wonder” will include maps, photographs, advertisements, illustrated guide books, travel narratives, promotional brochures, scientific surveys, reports and correspondence that will highlight the experiences of visitors to the parks and the many (sometimes conflicting) visions of national parks that took shape over the past eighty years.

“Real American Places: Edward Weston and Leaves of Grass”

A new exhibition opening this fall considers a rich dialogue between two iconic figures in American culture: the renowned photographer Edward Weston (1886–1958) and poet Walt Whitman (1819–1892). The 25 photographs included in the exhibition illuminate an understudied chapter of Weston’s career. In 1941, the Limited Editions Book Club approached Weston to collaborate on a deluxe edition of Whitman’s poetry collection, Leaves of Grass. The publisher’s ambitious plan was to capture “the real American faces and the real American places” that defined Whitman’s epic work. More

Orbit Pavilion

The Orbit Pavilion is an outdoor installation that is the brainchild of Dan Goods and David Delgado, visual strategists at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, who conceived an innovative “soundscape” representing the movement of the International Space Station and 19 Earth satellites. Satellites that study the Earth are passing through space continuously, collecting data on everything from hurricanes to the effects of drought. What if you could make contact with these orbiting spacecraft, and bring them “down to Earth?” Visitors can do exactly that when NASA’s Orbit Pavilion sound experience touches down at The Huntington this fall.
