In recognition of the 400th anniversary of the meeting of European and Native American peoples, a new exhibition at The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens will look at how North American Indians have been depicted in art, primarily from the 1500s through the 1800s. The exhibition, "Legacy and Legend: Images of Indians from Four Centuries," runs from June 9 to Sept. 2, in the MaryLou and George Boone Gallery. "For centuries European-trained artists created art for audiences that knew little about Indians, and so their images often romanticized them and focused on the more dramatic," says guest curator Kathryn Hight.

La Cañadans may have noticed a new flag flying high between American Valley Mortgage and Hill Street Café on Foothill Boulevard last Thursday. The pole has been there for over 50 years but had been overtaken by weeds and neglect until a few Girl Scout Troops in La Cañada decided to restore it. The girls stood in silent salute as the flag was marched toward the pole by scouts Shirley Drange and Erica Tavera marched toward the pole. The flag was raised, the girls were then dismissed to the sound of cheers.

Architect Alfred A. Jausen built the mid-century architectural marvel at 3740 Hampstead Road for himself. It is situated on a premier view lot of about half an acre in the Flintridge hills with breathtaking views of the San Gabriel mountains and glittering lights of Los Angeles' downtown skyline. An entertainer's dream, every room has walls of glass with sliders opening onto lush park-like grass yards and custom Pebble Tek pool designed by legendary pool builder BF Perry. From the classic mid-century entry with waterfall feature, rock stepping stones and one-of-a-kind cast art glass front door, this four-bedroom, three-bath home has been meticulously redesigned with mid-century details.

A towering oak tree that had stood for more than a century came crashing down this weekend onto the parking lot of the Lanterman House, the victim of heavy winds and rains that also felled a number of other large trees throughout La Cañada Flintridge. The 60-foot-tall native oak had shaded most of the property’s south side and predated the Lanterman House, built in 1915, by decades, said Executive Director Melissa Patton. “It’s a huge loss. I’m really upset about it,” Patton said Tuesday, when only a 15-foot segment of the tree’s massive trunk remained.
