“A forest for trees”: Art has long been a partner with nature, and this new immersive installation, created by artist Glenn Kaino and inspired by “Who Owns America’s Wilderness?” series from The Atlantic, questions our relationship with the wild world, our commitment to ecology, and the care and nurturing of our homeworld. The “symbolic resurrection of an iconic 144-year-old Olvera Street tree downed by a recent storm” is one moving element, among many, of the empowering spectacle, which is on view for a limited time.

Glendale’s Pioneering Women Entrepreneurs: The Doctor’s House Museum & Gazebo is one of our city’s most historic places, a true portal to an earlier era in Los Angeles, and its exhibits have long celebrated leadership in our city. Now that it has reopened, the landmark will feature an exhibit called “Breaking Barriers: Glendale’s Pioneer Women Entrepreneurs.” Opening night is scheduled for May 14, giving guests a chance to preview the all-new exhibit. A ticket to the inspiring event? It’s $20. If you can’t attend, “Breaking Barriers” is on view until November 15.

Disneyland Auction: The Van Eaton Galleries in Sherman Oaks are known for their gigantic Disney-themed auctions, and the oversized event taking place in mid-May is surely on the whoa-that’s huge side. There are hundreds of Disneyland and Walt Disney World items to bid on, welcome signs, original concept art, and a 1930s animator’s office. Ventura Boulevard? You can watch a live stream of the May 14-15 extravaganza and bid online.
