Somebody hung a nice-looking poster on the south face of this building on Raymond Avenue. I don't know who the artist is. It kinda looks like a Miro to me, but since I couldn't find this exact picture online I can't be sure. I was telling Pasadena Adjacent it reminds me of a picture my mother hung in our playroom when I was a kid. I was never much into abstract art.
This poster may be temporary. It isn't listed on the city website's public art walking art tours. (If you like that web page I suggest you bookmark it. The city's website is full of great information but it's organized by department - perfect if you think like a bureaucrat, but since I don't it's difficult for me to find what I need there. I tried searching the site for "public art." They're called "Public Art Walking Tours" after all. But I came up with nothing.)
But that's a minor complaint. The good thing is there's so much public art in Pasadena! To me, that's the mark of a world-class city. Paris, London, Chicago...I've never been to New York, but I hear...well, you've gotta have public art. In museums, sure, that's fine, but it's also got to be out there in the parks and on the streets as part of daily life! Life should be lived with beauty. Pasadena knows how to do that.
It's a nice surprise to see a big, cheerful poster on the side of a building! It's like a belly laugh in the middle of nowhere for no reason at all except the fun of it.
