‘MAPPING THE SUBLIME’ AT BRAND LIBRARY & ART CENTER
“Mapping the Sublime: Reframing Landscape in the 21st Century” is at the Brand Library & Art Center through June 11.
Los Angeles-based artists Lawrence Gipe and Beth Davila Waldman organized this survey of a diverse group of 19 artists that challenge the culture’s conceptions regarding landscape, re-examining the genre as a mediated view of nature and a construction of centuries of aesthetic processing, demarcation and colonial expansion. The works persuade the viewer to consider the landscape genre anew, with traditional notions of the Sublime reevaluated to reflect contemporary issues of climate change and the Anthropocene.
A free, public reception will be held on Saturday, April 23 with an artist’s panel discussion moderated by Shana Nys Dambrot.
Brand Library & Art Center, 1601 W. Mountain St. in Glendale

THE STORY OF THE VERDUGO HILLS CEMETERY
Little Landers Historical Society invites visitors to view a recently installed temporary exhibit at Bolton Hall Museum featuring the local pioneer cemetery, now in its 100th year. The first burial was that of beloved local preacher Pastor Wornum on April 22, 1922. The Hills of Peace, as it was known early on, became the final resting place of many local community pioneers with burials continuing through the late 1970s.
The exhibit traces the history of the cemetery through good times and not so good times up to today’s restoration conducted by the Friends of the Verdugo Hills Cemetery.
Exhibit viewing hours through June 2022 are Saturday and Sunday afternoons from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and by appointment.
Bolton Hall Museum, home of Little Landers Historical Society, is located at 10110 Commerce Ave. in Tujunga.
