No Boundaries PUSD Art Show

May 24, 2011

Art Night may have come and gone, but you can still dip your toe in the fresh stream of the PUSD “No Boundaries” student art show.  In consideration of those of us with busy schedules and good intentions, this excellent PUSD show will run through Sunday, May 29 in the space just below Trader Joes’s at the Shops on Lake. More than 400 visual art works are on display, created by artists ranging from kindergarten to 12th grade.

This 6th annual PUSD show has a tireless cheerleader in Marshall Ayers, District Arts Coordinator, who shares that the exhibit “showcases artwork from all twenty-nine schools in the Pasadena Unified School District. The title of the exhibit, “No Boundaries,” means there are no limits to the size or media used, and also refers to the unlimited creative potential of the students in our district. This is our 6th year and it’s become a highly anticipated annual PUSD tradition because it brings all our schools, staff, parents, teachers and students together to celebrate the arts.”

This year’s location is spacious and well lit and allows viewers to comfortably move through the space. Stein Mart and Vornando Realty Trust who manage The Shops on Lake generously donated the vacant store front to the District free of charge to use for the exhibit.  Ayers adds, “We strive to install the exhibit as professionally as possible given our limited resources, and hang the work thematically rather than by school or grade. The student statements accompanying each piece give a voice to the hundreds of participating student artists. The show is like a snapshot in time of the whole Pasadena public school arts community.”

Be sure to stop by after your workout or shopping run at TJ’s. You’ll be glad you did.
