Throughout the year, The Huntington presents a slate of world-class exhibitions in its MaryLou and George Boone Gallery. Formerly known as the Carriage House, the Boone Gallery enables The Huntington to mount major art and library exhibitions drawn from its permanent collections, as well as those traveling on loan from other institutions, for its audience of over 500,000 visitors annually. This 7,000-square-foot neoclassical structure built in 1911 was designed for founder Henry Huntington by noted Southern California architects Myron Hunt and Elmer Grey, and was renovated in 1999 through the generous support of philanthropists MaryLou and George Boone.
Every “First Thursday” The Huntington is able to offer free admission to anyone who wishes to visit and reserves a space through the generous support of our corporate sponsors. Sponsorship of First Thursdays is an effective way to communicate your company’s values while enabling tens of thousands of people to experience The Huntington's treasures who may not otherwise be able to visit.
Education Program Sponsorship
Corporate sponsorship supports many of the worthwhile educational activities at The Huntington. Each year 25,000 visiting students are inspired by the eye-opening introduction to art, literature, and nature they receive from professionally trained docents. And many thousands more benefit from family programs, continuing adult education, and much more.
