Allan Hancock College Offers Bus Trip to Descanso Gardens, Norton Simon Museum

Allan Hancock College Community Education is offering a bus trip to Descanso Gardens in La Cañada Flintridge and the Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena on Friday, May 3.

The Norton Simon Museum houses seven centuries of European art by distinguished artists such as Monet, Renoir, van Gogh and Cézanne. The museum’s 20th century collection features works by Picasso, Matisse and Goya. Also on display are South and Southeast Asian sculptures and paintings spanning 2,000 years.

After a morning of art viewing, the trip continues to Descanso Gardens, an urban retreat of year-round natural beauty, renowned botanical collections and spectacular seasonal horticultural displays. Explore the posh environs of the historic Boddy House, which offers a glimpse of a glamorous bygone era, and the Sturt Haaga Gallery, a composition of both historic and contemporary sustainable design.

The bus will leave Allan Hancock College at 7:15 a.m. and return by 10 p.m. The cost is $62 and does not include meals. An itinerary will be sent to registered students one week prior to the trip.

Registration is required for this community services class. The registration and refund deadline is March 27. Click here to register online through the myHancock portal, click the Student tab and proceed. The course number (CRN) is 41814.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
