Art Night Pasadena

14 Oct

2 days before i left the States, i was fortunate enough to hang out with a good friend of mine (DidE aka Ms. Hepburn) her family, and our friends for her birthday. We started off the evening with the Pasadena Art Night tour. Though i didn’t get to see much, what i did see was exquisite. We stopped at Yoko Ono’s Wish Tree for Pasadena exhibit. Wish Tree for Pasadena is an art installation that consists of 21 living crape myrtle trees installed amongst the cafe tables and chairs in the Courtyard of One Colorado. Visitors are invited to write their wishes on pieces of paper and hang them on the tree branches. It was very heart-touching to see that many people with wishes and very sobering to think that not many of them will be met. It makes you think!!

The other venues that you are allowed to visit include:

  • Armory Center for the Arts
  • Art Center College of Design
  • Norton Simon Museum
  • One Colorado
  • Pacific Asia Museum
  • Pasadena City College
  • Pasadena Jazz Institute
  • Pasadena Museum of California Art
  • Pasadena Museum of History
  • Pasadena Public Library
  • Side Street Projects

They also offer different venues for food and wine along with food specials at participating restaurants. Free and paid parking, and either a guided bus tour or your own guided walking tour with their directions. If you’re into art or would like to get into art (of all kind) then this is something you should definitely check out if you’re in the Los Angeles area. 

the next Art Night is in the Spring. March 13th, 2009 6pm-10pm.
