ArtNight Pasadena Returns March 10

ArtNight Pasadena will be coming to 21 venues across the city on Friday, March 10, from 6-10 p.m.
The festival is a free cultural tourism event that is produced by the city’s Cultural Affairs Division in collaboration with ArtNight partner organizations. Its various venues will enliven the city and engage audiences with visual art, dance and music performances, among other entertainment.
The eclectic potpourri of arts programming includes exhibitions that focus on design at the two ArtCenter campuses. “Inside the Mind of a Designer” surveys the work of Clive Piercy the noted designer, author and educator, while the “Polski Projekt” exhibits Poland’s posters and type design.
Other visual arts exhibitions kick off with PUSD’s “No Boundaries 18” student art exhibition at Paseo Colorado and murals by local artists at One Colorado.
Attendees can explore eco-friendly themes with the Armory Center for the Arts exhibition “Exposure: Native Art and Political Ecology,” while Light Bringer Project at Day One features “Wild,” a collaborative art experience featuring outdoor environments that highlight climate, sustainability and endangered species.
Kidspace Children’s Museum will debut “Butterfly Season” by offering visitors a chance to weave, spin and play in celebration of spring, while the “Fairy Garden” at City Hall Rotunda invites patrons to make a spring succulent terrarium.
Among the multicultural programs are a lineup of visual artists and Capoeira dance at Alkebu-lan Cultural Center; the USC Pacific Asia Museum’s “Global Asias: Contemporary Asian and Asian American Art”; and the Pasadena Conservatory of Music, which presents classical, multicultural and interactive performances.
Additionally, ArtNight participants can join Shumei Arts Council for an evening of Japanese Taiko drumming and an interactive dance class, or visit Parson’s Nose Theater for “An Irish Celebration: Poetry, Songs and Humor.”
The Pasadena Public Library’s “One City, One Story 2023” will celebrate authors and books, while exploring Afghani and Latino culture at the Lamanda Park Branch.
The Pasadena Museum of History’s “Community Stitches: Quilts Designs & Stories” will allow art-goers to travel in time by learning about the more than180 years of quilt-making in America. Lineage Performing Arts Center’s “Matter of Time” will put on a dance and theater show, and Side Street Projects will provide an Asian futurist journey into the past with “Invisible Teahouse,” a multimedia installation with artist Alan Nakagawa at the campus of John Muir High School.
Remainders Creative Reuse, an all-ages creative space and gallery, will offer music and art activities, and JazzZone at the Jackie Robinson Community Center will bring an interactive painting of Harriet Tubman to life.
ArtNight student performances and activities can be found at artWORKS Teen Center, which pops-up in the First United Methodist Church courtyard, or participants can explore the Gamble House at night with a self-guided tour.
The city’s Arts and Culture Commission funds mini grants to allow small arts groups and individual artists to participate. Each venue has a Braille version of the ArtNight brochure and many venues, including City Hall, will have food trucks on site.
