The famous “Corpse Flower” at the Huntington Garden and Library is set to bloom again any day now. This plant, which smells like rotting meat when it blooms, only opens up once in several years, and only stays in bloom for a few days. It’s been growing 3 to 5 inches every day for the past 3 weeks. This plant is actually the offspring of the one that bloomed last, in 2002, hence its nickname Son of Stinky. Read more here, and go visit if you dare!

Photographer Richard Ross came by yesterday to photograph this “organic installation” at the VRC.
We will soon be adding nearly 700 Richard Ross photographs to the VRC image database. They will include images from his publications Museology (1989), Gathering Light (2000), Waiting for the End of the World (2004), and Architecture of Authority (2007), as well as from his work in progress Suitable Placement: Juvenile Justice in America. Stay Tuned for announcements!
