Faux Bois at The Huntington
2:30 p.m.–3:30 p.m.
Craftsman Terry Eagan introduces and narrates a series of time-lapse images by photographer Michael Stern documenting Eagan's restoration of the century-old faux bois trellises in The Huntington's Japanese Garden and Rose Garden areas. Faux bois (French for "false wood") is an art form that uses sculpted concrete to create structures resembling rustic wood. This style of garden ornamentation was fashionable in the early 1900s, when the gardens on the Huntington estate were first established, and the trellises have lent historic charm to the landscape ever since.
