City Club, Chinese Club Welcome Garden Curator

The San Marino City Club and the Chinese Club of San Marino joined forces last week to welcome Phillip Bloom, curator of the Chinese Garden and director of the Center for East Asian Garden Studies at the Huntington Library, as the City Club’s first guest speaker of the season. Nearly 100 guests attended the meeting held at the Huntington Library, which featured tours of the garden before dinner, where Bloom spoke about the meaning and context of the Huntington’s Chinese Garden and discussed the enhancements and construction of the garden’s third and final phase, which is underway.
