Look for flower arrangements, photography, botanical jewelry and needle crafts that interpret the theme “the beauty of scientific discovery” at the Pasadena Garden Club Flower show this Saturday and Sunday at the Huntington Library. Members have put their creativity into play around ideas inspired by some of the rare materials in the Huntington’s Dibner Hall for the History of Science.
The renovated Dibner Hall holds an exhibition called “Beautiful Science: Ideas That Changed the World” with manuscripts, books and other holdings arranged into categories of astronomy, natural history, medicine and light. Works by Aristotle, Darwin, Einstein and Galileo are among the highlights.
The flower show is in Friends’ Hall, so allow time to walk back and forth between the two locations and judge for yourself how the creative connections have been made.
