Words & Art: Written in California

Words & Art: Written in California

From science and art we move smoothly to literature and art — the same night as the Caltech talk about science and art, a new reading series launches at the Pasadena Museum of California Art. Called Written in California, the series kicks off with readings by three poets published by Red Hen Press, which recently [...]

Science Meets Art at Caltech

Science Meets Art at Caltech

It’s easy to take for granted the remarkable programming put on by Caltech, and not so easy to actually get over there and take advantage of it. But the school year is ending, and the place gets quiet in the summer, so now’s about your last chance for a few months to enjoy yet another [...]

Bike Week Pasadena

Bike Week Pasadena

Bicycles are coming back in a big way. Bike enthusiasts are organizing, in fact. Those extremists probably don’t have anything to do, however, with Pasadena’s upcoming Bike Week: three days of events celebrating the bicycle in all its glory. Highlights include: The Pasadena Crosstown Ride, Bicycle Film Night, Family and Bikes Day, and so on. [...]

Iris in Wonderland with Vox Femina

Iris in Wonderland with Vox Femina

What do Alice in Wonderland, the Voice of Woman and a beautiful Altadena estate have in common? Ordinarily, nothing. This Sunday, however, the acclaimed Los Angeles women’s choir Vox Femina will be singing in the gardens of that beautiful Altadena estate, while guests enjoy a buffet, tea, coffee and champagne straight from the Mad Hatter’s Tea [...]

Free Music Under the Stars

Free Music Under the Stars

Orchestral music is one of those things that’s never as cheap as you think it should be. Sure, it often requires dozens of performers with advanced training, expensive equipment, and other costly things, but it’s not like it’s Rock (Me Amadeus).… anyway. Every year, the Pasadena POPS puts on a free concert in front of [...]

The (Free) Rose Bowl Stadium Games

The (Free) Rose Bowl Stadium Games

The elusive Rose Bowl. You see it all the time. You drive past it on your way to Glendale. Sure, you can bike around it, or play soccer on the surrounding fields. But have you ever been… inside? Maybe you have, but I sure haven’t. But that can change, this very Sunday. Here’s how: The [...]

JPL Open House 2010

JPL Open House 2010

JPL has quite an interesting history. The more outrageous episodes, however, will probably not be on display at this weekend’s open house. Instead, visitors will be treated to exhibits and demonstrations of the lab’s ongoing research into space exploration, time travel, and ALIENS. Mostly the space exploring, though. There will be fun things for kids [...]

How Birds Can Save the World

How Birds Can Save the World

Those devoted nature enthusiasts at the Pasadena Audubon Society have a treat planned for their next general meeting: a visit from Dr. John Fitzpatrick, the director of the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology. Dr. Fitzpatrick’s illustrated lecture will examine the vital role birds play in the conservation of biological diversity, and in international diplomacy. Canaries in [...]

This Week at Vroman’s: Laura Bush and Justin Halpern

This Week at Vroman’s: Laura Bush and Justin Halpern

The former First Lady surely needs no introduction. She lived in the White House for eight years, and then she wrote a book — a memoir. She’s famously private, so the book’s supposed candor could be a pleasant surprise. One thing: She still, of course, gets Secret Service protection, so the rules for attending her [...]

One Night Only: Glee!

One Night Only: Glee!

No, not that Glee, but another, better, finer Glee. Among the finest, in fact: the University of Michigan Men’s Glee Club, older than dirt (since 1859) and considered one of the best men’s choirs in the world. As part of their 150th Anniversary Tour, they’ll be appearing at Pasadena Presbyterian alongside the newest sub-choir of the [...]
