Art Night

Topiaries, by Christie Beniston, is part of Pasadena's Rotating Art Exhibition program
I took this photo in February of 2012. 
Bellis reports that the art is still there at the corner of Walnut and Catalina.


Do your Friday night plans include Art Night Pasadena? If not, you must cancel whatever you've got going on and get yourself some free art!

Have you ever wondered what they're doing up in them thar hills at the Art Center College of Design? Maybe you'd like to catch a dance performance, or a nostalgic video about the Robinson brothers, Jackie and Mack. How often do you get to go to the Norton Simon for free, or see beneath the foundations of Room 13? Or maybe you'd like to check out a newer gallery like the Off-Ramp.

Music, theater, dance, art, more and more. You can't possibly see it all but you can try, with the help of free shuttles between venues.

One stop I hope you'll make is at the Pasadena Central Library, where I'll be meeting and greeting visitors along with other authors, artists and well-known storybook characters as we celebrate 130 years of reading in Pasadena. There are so many great Art Night activities for kids and the library is one of them, with family fun activities; musical performances, craft making, comics creators and more.

If you're not too worn out, don't forget the Art Walk on Saturday, when you can stop by Vroman's and see Debbi Swanson Patrick's Telling Images in Art on the Stairwell, with a reception from 1-3 pm.

While you're at it, Altadena has an important vote coming up on November 4th. Please vote yes on Measure A and keep the Altadena Libraries going!

It sounds like a similar concept to Nuit Blanche.

Petrea Burchard said...

I didn't know that, William. That's wonderful. Are the artistic venues open to all on Nuit Blanche? Here we don't have the special dinner with everyone wearing white clothes, though I think that would be a good idea.

Very colourful, hope the Art Walk goes well on Saturday.

Petrea Burchard said...

Thank you, Geoff. It should be fun.

What a menu -- thank you for all the links. I'll plan accordingly.

Petrea Burchard said...

Yeah. I think this might be the best one so far.

Bellis said...

Too much.... I won't know what to go to.... but thanks for all the links.

That art is still there on Walnut. I love it.

Petrea Burchard said...

Thanks, Bellis. I'll fix that in the post!

I do wish they could extend Art Night to Night(s). I've other plans, but if you are interested in Fine Arts may I suggest the California Museum of Art (if it's one of the participants).

Petrea Burchard said...

Thanks, PA, that's a good one. And it's right next to the Pacific Asia Museum, so you can knock of two at a time.
