Admission is free. An advanced timed-entry ticket is required.
Los Angeles-based artist Elana Mann leads a participatory sonic tour of the Herb Garden and Outer Peristyle inspired by pioneering volcanologist Frank Alvord Perret, who invented geophones to listen to the earth's subterranean rumblings. Mann has designed "histophones" to allow visitors to detect real and imagined murmurs of history. What sounds will you hear? Open to 20 participants. This is a free program. Sign-up begins 15 minutes before the program at the Tour Meeting Place.
