Legends of the Halls

Join us in August for this virtual Members-only series focusing on some of the amazing past events and people of the Santa Barbara of Museum of Natural History, and the impacts they had in shaping who we are today.

Peggy Maximus left a legacy for future generations when she established the John and Peggy Maximus Gallery at the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. Its unique collection of antique prints and its exhibit program are focused on the intersection of nature, history, science, and art. The gallery is celebrating its 25-year anniversary this year.

Join John and Peggy Maximus Gallery Curator Linda Miller as she sheds light on Peggy’s generous spirit, sense of style, and the perseverance with which she pursued her vision.
