By offering always changing exhibitions in the Gardens and the galleries our hope is that Visitors will be inspired to see and think about Descanso Gardens in new and unexpected ways.  

Sturt Haaga Gallery

No visit to Descanso Gardens is complete without a visit to the Sturt Haaga Gallery. Rotating exhibits throughout the year seek to illuminate the intersection between contemporary arts and the sciences represented by the garden — botany, horticulture, biology, ecology, conservation, and the study of gardens as cultural artifacts.

The next exhibition will be Shine a Light featuring Carole Kim from July 15 to September 27, 2019.

Her exploration of the Gardens will culminate in an exhibition in the gallery and site-specific projection drawings and performances.
