5x5_in_PRINTMagical exhibit at the Huntington in San Marino: John Frame

Apr 16, 2011, 5:04 PM | For visitors who are thinking of visiting the Huntington Gardens, Library and Gallery in San Marino (near Pasadena)— and for locals who haven’t visited in a while:

In addition to its usual treasures (finest gardens in Southern California, interesting art collections and world-class library, AND yummy treats at the tea room), the Huntington is showing an amazing exhibit of sculpture by Southern California artist John Frame. Like nothing I’ve ever seen before. Magical, otherworldly, strangely alive and spiritual small figurative sculptures/puppets, inhabiting a mysterious world of their own. Part of an ongoing project that will include a film and a “story”, some of which can be seen as part of the exhibit. My friend and I were just blown away; I can’t wait to take other family and friends to see this exhibit.

It is there til mid-June; recommended for all ages (I think children will love it); tucked away in a hard-to-find location in the very back building, so ask if you can’t find it. (read more)
