Iconic Los Angeles pop artist and graphic designer John Van Hamersveld's inspirational collection of drawings will be showcased in his upcoming exhibition Drawing Attention.

Drawing Attention will highlight forty-five years of Van Hamersveld's visionary drawings in a remarkable 3,000 square foot exhibition and provides a special opportunity to see his personal drawing collection in one cohesive package.

Accompanying the exhibition is a stunning 160-page book, entitled Drawing Attention by John Van Hamersveld.

Renowned graphic designer and a founding member of New York's legendary Push Pin Studios, Seymour Chwast writes the insightful and enlightening foreword to this book.

Image for CSUN-al Gardening: Explore What Makes an Audubon Habitat GardenCSUN-al Gardening: Explore What Makes an Audubon Habitat Garden

9:00 am - 12:00 pm - TBA
http://www.csun.edu/botanicgarden

In this time of extended drought and watering restrictions, Southern California residents are searching for lawn alternatives that donât sacrifice visual appeal.

Drought-tolerant plantings, especially those utilizing California natives or Mediterranean-climate species, can provide color, texture, and beauty while reducing water usage and benefiting the local fauna.

California State University, Northridge's next CSUN-al Gardening Series class will explore how, by converting a yard or lawn into an Audubon Habitat, a sanctuary for both wildlife and people, homeowners can reduce water, fertilizer, and maintenance needs, and at the same time create a welcoming setting for birds, butterflies, and humans.

Speaker Alan Pollack, Audubon-at-Home Chair for the San Fernando Valley Audubon Society, will share his love of wildlife and gardening. Pollack has successfully converted his own yard into a National Wildlife Federation-certified "Backyard Wildlife Habitat" site. He will answer questions about creating a garden that is attractive to wildlife, as well as humans, and conserves water.

"By using California natives and other drought-tolerant plants, homeowners can reduce not only water and fertilizer usage, but also maintenance time," said Brenda Kanno, manager of CSUN's Botanic Garden, which hosts the series. "Using these plants to convert a lawn into an Audubon Habitat will provide a beautiful, colorful setting for the family and local fauna to enjoy."

Registration for the class is required. Email botanicgarden@csun.edu to request a space in the class or for more information. Driving and parking instructions, as well as the class meeting location, will be sent upon registration.

The Cal State Northridge Botanic Garden is operated by the university's Department of Biology and serves as a field site for botany, entomology, photography, painting and other classes. In addition to outdoor landscapes and natural botanic environments, the garden also features greenhouses where noteworthy botanical specimens are grown. The garden is open to the community.
