2019 Adaptive Art Exhibition booklet cover artPASADENA, Calif.—Experience “The Real Me” at this year’s Adaptive Art Exhibition. The Human Services and Recreation Department's Adaptive Art class offers adults with disabilities the opportunity to express their creativity, explore different art materials and techniques and, in the process, find their inner artist. Each member of the class has created a heartfelt work that illustrates their notion of “The Real Me.” The show is on exhibit 12-5 p.m. in the Community Room at Armory Center for the Arts, 145 N. Raymond Avenue, until August 17 (closed Tuesdays). Admission is free.

A special reception is scheduled for Saturday, July 20, from 3 - 5 p.m., at Armory Center for the Arts. Admission to the reception is free and several of the artists will be present with their artwork. Booklets of the exhibit will be available for a suggested $10 tax-deductible donation to the Pasadena Recreation and Parks Foundation. This year’s cover art, titled “All About Me,” is by artist Mark Anderson of San Marino. He uses vibrant shades of red, gold and green in his depiction of his authentic self.
