ArtNight - Spring 2020

March 13, 2020 ArtNight Pasadena CANCELED!

ArtNight is a unique Pasadena event that relies on a number of independent art venues coming together to jointly produce a city wide effort. While the City Health Officer has not directed us to cancel this event, the City is concerned that ongoing community perception of current health issues will reduce attendance as well as limit the number of volunteers available to provide staffing. A number of participating venues have also expressed concerns over health issues as well as over reduced attendance.

Therefore, after due consideration and comprehensive discussions, the City of Pasadena regretfully will not hold the semi-annual ArtNight Pasadena scheduled for Friday, March 13th. We will work with our partners to coordinate the next ArtNight and keep you updated.
