The Huntington celebrates the centennial of the National Park Service with the second of two exhibitions focusing on the role that parks have played in U.S. history. “Geographies of Wonder: Evolution of the National Park Idea, 1933—2016” depicts the unceasing public enthusiasm for park spaces, as well as changes in the concept of the national park over the years. Works illuminate the paradox of making the lands enjoyable public spaces while preserving them. The exhibition is on view Saturday through Feb. 13.
The Orbit Pavilion Sound Experience installation goes on view, a nautilus-shell-shaped, aluminum-clad structure 28 feet in diameter, designed by New York design firm StudioKCA. As satellites fly through space, a corresponding sound emanates from each of the 28 speakers mounted on the structure’s interior wall. Visitors hear a sort of symphony, with a sound interpreting each of the satellites’ various missions, in a soundscape composed by Oakland-based sound artist Shane Myrbeck. The installation is located at the Huntington’s Celebration Lawn Saturday through Feb. 27.
