Penguin Chick Hatches
Aquarium of the Pacific
100 Aquarium Way
562 590 3100
The Aquarium of the Pacific announces the birth of Magellanic Penguin chick Lily. The baby has joined the other penguins in the June Keyes Penguin Habitat.
Magellanic Penguins are a temperate species native to the coasts of Argentina and Chile in South America. It takes between thirty-eight and forty-three days of incubation before a Magellanic Penguin egg will hatch. Chicks hatch with their eyes closed, and they are able to open their eyes about a week later. Magellanic Penguin parents take turns incubating the eggs on the nest and feeding and raising the chicks after they hatch.
We can help support the nonprofit organization’s new penguin chick by participating in the “Adopt an Animal Program.” Adopt a chick at the $50 level or more and your name will be entered into an opportunity drawing for a penguin encounter and a one-of-a-kind painting by a penguin chick.

African Textiles and Adornment:
Selections from the Marcel and Zaira Mis Collection
Los Angeles County Museum of Art
5905 Wilshire Boulevard
323 857 6010
See the brilliant color, bold patterns, and intriguing symbols that characterize the dress of many societies throughout the African continent at the exhibition “African Textiles and Adornment” at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
Not only are garments visually compelling, but they are also laden with emblems of power that signify the wealth, status, prestige, or even divinity of the bearer. The body’s seat of intelligence, spirit, and identity is also established by crowning the head with spectacular structures fashioned out of feathers or beads that soar above or surround the head, increasing or expanding a subject’s stature.
Featuring more than 35 dynamic textiles and commanding headdresses, this exhibition presents the profound visual impact of African textiles. Fashioned in a variety of techniques and enhanced with a broad range of natural materials, these extraordinary garments and headpieces sculpt the body into iconic form and serve as aesthetic surrogates for power and esteem
