As Vice Chair of the Orange County Great Park, I invite you to see the Great Park’s latest art exhibition, Golden Parks: Huell Howser, through Sunday, May 13.
Huell Howser (October 18, 1945 – January 7, 2013) was a beloved American television personality, actor, producer, writer, singer, and voice artist, best known for hosting, producing, and writing California’s Gold, his award-winning human interest show produced by KCET in Los Angeles for California PBS stations, which began in 1991 and ran for for 24 seasons.
The legacy left behind by the late TV legend Huell Howser continues to educate generations on the history and beauty of the Golden State.
This exhibition highlights the Golden Parks that Huell Howser documented throughout his career and emphasizes the importance of their role in cultivating healthy communities.
The exhibition is put on in partnership with Chapman University Leatherby Libraries, home of the Huell Howser Archives, which provides streaming of Huell Howser’s video archives.
