The Art of Honoring the Dead

The Art of Honoring the Dead

El Día de Los Muertos, the tradition of honoring loved ones, which can be traced back thousands of years to the pre-Columbian era, has inspired innumerable creative expressions. The building of ofrendas, making detailed sugar skulls and tissue paper flowers, masks, and calacas (skeletons) are symbols of lasting love and a desire to honor a particular individual. The [...]

Light Bringer Project, which brings us the stunningly beautiful Chalk Festival and the blast-of-a-good-time Doo Dah Parade, also has its hand in a dozen other projects that focus on helping kids find, learn, explore, and express their artistic vision. At this year’s ArtNight Pasadena, Light Bringer Project presents “Luminosity” at Day One. This event is being [...]

It’s Tweet Treats…and All That Jazz

It’s Tweet Treats…and All That Jazz

This is the first year of this event and we think it’s a fun idea. Gardeners and architects—actually, officially, the Pasadena Community Gardens and the Pasadena & Foothill Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (what a mouthful!)—are partnering to raise money for architectural scholarships and water-wise plants in the community garden by hosting “Tweet Treats…and All [...]

Holiday Candlelight 2014

Holiday Candlelight 2014

We know it’s appalling, exasperating, and plain yucky to be promoting a Christmas event when we haven’t even celebrated Halloween, which is antithetical to the spirit of the holiday, but tickets for the Pasadena Symphony‘s Holiday Candlelight concert are already a third sold. So we’re spreading the word early, especially to those who have yet to experience this [...]

Being Earnest As Only Wilde Can Be

Being Earnest As Only Wilde Can Be

“To be born, or at any rate bred, in a hand-bag, whether it had handles or not, seems to me to display a contempt for the ordinary decencies of family life that reminds one of the worst excesses of the French Revolution.” “You can hardly imagine that I and Lord Bracknell would dream of allowing [...]

20th Biannual Art on Palm

20th Biannual Art on Palm

Wild Wood Park is tucked away, a nook, a wondrous hideaway. Once you see the cars lining both sides of the street, you know you’re in the right place, but still have no idea where to go. Follow the people. Down a small track that winds back into “an ancient oak canyon.” Here local artists [...]

Wiggle Waggle 2014

Wiggle Waggle 2014

Every year, the Pasadena Humane Society’s Wiggle Waggle Walk unites families and dogs to raise funds in support of dogs that don’t have families. There will be a fashion show and a look-alike contest. I don’t much resemble Wilma except in lounging posture, and neither of us is ready to be in such a big crowd. [...]

The Curious Art of Origami

The Curious Art of Origami

Continuing with the curious axis theme of the week, as in AxS Festival “Curiosity,” we were happily informed of another noteworthy event: “The Curious Art of Origami.” Curator Meher McArthur has brought together several distinct origamists: laser physicist Robert Lang; fashion, animated, and connecting cranes” artist Linda Mihara; and Vietnamese architect Giang Dinh. Though Robert [...]

Shakespeare in the PARK(let)

Shakespeare in the PARK(let)

The third Friday of September is coming quickly, which means it’s time to prepare for PARK(ing) Day 2014. This is the movement begun in 2005 when Matthew, John, and Blaine wanted to bring attention to the lack of urban parks and pubic space. They accomplished this by paying a parking meter on a street in San Francisco—for two hours. During [...]
