California Wildflowers and Climate Change
Saturday, February 10, 2018–Sunday, June 17, 2018.
For over 20 years, award-winning Marin photographers Rob Badger and Nita Winter have produced exquisite photographs of California wildflowers that connect us to the beauty of the Golden State while raising awareness of threats that natural habitats face from climate change. The exhibition spotlights flowers associated with the state’s many geographic regions, the photographic techniques involved in capturing these delicate subjects, and the expanding impact of human activity on wild spaces. A sampling of Grace Hudson’s wildflower paintings will also be on display.

Short-term exhibits in The Main Gallery highlight contemporary art, Native American cultures, Western American history, historic California art and local natural history. Permanent collections showcase Grace Hudson’s art; her family’s history; and Pomo culture and basketry.
the wild gardens
An outdoor Art and Education center is under development on the museum grounds. Located in a parklike setting, The Wild Gardens features native plant gardens with exhibits and art that teaches about our local environment and how Pomo Indian people managed this landscape.
the sun house
The Hudson’s charming 1911 redwood Craftsman bungalow home, the Sun House sits adjacent to the Museum and is available for docent-led tours. More than a century old, The Sun House allows visitors a glimpse into the Hudsons’ Bohemian lifestyle.
The Grace Hudson Museum highlights regional art, culture and natural history in the tradition of an extraordinary family – that of Ukiah native and nationally admired artist Grace Carpenter Hudson (1865-1937), her ethnologist husband, Dr. John W. Hudson (1857-1936) and her pioneering forebears. We provide opportunities for cultural engagement, art appreciation, historical reflection and hands-on learning.
