Visit Ilan-Lael, the hand-built sculptural home, the working-artist studios and gardens created by James and Anne Hubbell. A Father’s Day tradition for more than 35 years, come and explore the architecture and art nestled amidst the oaks and boulders. Walk the winding paths and gardens on your own, enjoy live music, shop the artworks on display, and take in the beauty of the Laguna Mountains. Whatever your pleasure, you will be inspired by the way nature and art can truly dance together as one.
