The Big Draw at The Huntington
(Join us for the next Big Draw! The 2011 event is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 1, from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m., and is included with general admission. Location: Australian Garden lawn. Program details.)

On Saturday, Oct. 2, 2010, Huntington visitors took part in a unique communal art project that celebrated the act of drawing. Nature provided the drafting materials for this wonderfully organic work of art. Using the lawn of the Palm Garden as a living canvas, visitors made their “mark” by placing leaves, twigs, dried flowers, and other botanical materials on the grass to create a giant collage. Lines, patterns, colors, and textures emerged and changed with each addition.

The event was part of the Big Draw L.A., a month-long series coordinated by Ryman Arts that seeks to stimulate creativity and social engagement through innovative activities at museums and cultural organizations around Los Angeles.
