The Huntington Library spent the last four years preparing their contribution to Pacific Standard Time, “Visual Voyages: Images of Latin American Nature from Columbus to Darwin”. Dr. Daniela Bleichmar, who curated “Visual Voyages” with the Huntington’s Catherine Hess, gave KUSC’s Gail Eichenthal a look at the diverse offerings in the exhibition. Dr. Bleichmar explains that juxtaposing works from European and Latin American artists reveal how the study of nature was central to understanding art and the natural world:
From the Central Coast to San Diego, from Santa Monica to Palm Springs, there are fascinating people creating incredible art and performances. KUSC will be covering those experiences on Arts Alive. And when you’re in the mood for a little more, like a longer version of an interview, more Arts Alive coverage is available online at kusc.org/artsalive.
