Look deeply within...without setting foot in a museum.
Pasadena's public art is a reflection of our community’s diversity, and a source of identity and pride. Join us for a free docent-led public art tour, viewing the work of renowned local and national artists who have garnered national acclaim for the City’s collection. As diverse as the artists that create it, Pasadena’s public art ranges from a children’s playground modeled on the Arroyo Seco and art glass mirrors that tell the story of the City’s firefighters to a much larger-than-life memorial to Pasadena heroes Jackie Robinson and his brother Matthew “Mack” Robinson.
This tour will be led by Amy Ruvalcaba from Side Street Projects, a community-centered project that promotes socially engaged artists, youth education, and artist workshops with the goal of facilitating dialogue and creative problem solving through collaboration and hands-on artmaking.
