Betye Saar | Under The Silver Moon

Betye Saar's Under The Silver Moon is featured on F L A U N T Magazine's 25th anniversary cover. Saar’s site-specific installation Drifting Toward Twilight is on view now through November 2025 at The Huntington Library Botanical Gardens.When asked where was the most magical moon she's ever observed, Saar responded:

"Up at Yonderosa, my daughter’s desert ranch, there are many magical moons. The new moon that looks just like a sliver of a fingernail. Or the full moon that casts a shadow of the Joshua Trees almost like a flashlight. We all sit on the patio and watch the moon rise over the desert vista, as the sun sets behind us. Then sometimes I wake up early and see the sun rising as the moon slips behind the mountain. It’s always beautiful, and also a little humbling, to see nature do her thing."
