Huntington Circle and President's Circle Society of Fellows Members are invited to a special reception for The Hilton Als Series: Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.

Drawn from the world of found images and imagination, five portrait-like paintings by contemporary British artist Lynette Yiadom-Boakye is displayed adjacent to the historic Thornton Portrait Gallery—creating a dialogue with The Huntington's collection of highly formal 18th-century British portraits.

This exhibition is curated by Pulitzer Prize–winning author Hilton Als, staff writer and theater critic for The New Yorker magazine, and associate professor of writing at Columbia University.
