About the Exhibitions
THE ART OF GETTING THERE: Railroad Inspired Artistry
Curators Michael Patris and Steve Crise of the Mount Lowe Preservation Society celebrate the history and beauty of railroads through art. The Art of Getting There: Railroad Inspired Artistry features paintings, photography, lithography, carvings, and sculpture. Objects from the extensive archives of the Mount Lowe Preservation Society Collection are also on display. In addition, several unique and amazing artworks from private collections are featured. Nineteenth century to contemporary art is also on display, including a few pieces created specifically for the exhibition.
ART IN THE STREET: 25 Years of the Pasadena Chalk Festival
The Pasadena Chalk Festival is celebrating its silver anniversary this year. Tom Coston and Patricia Hurley of Light Bringer Project, founders and organizers of the Pasadena Chalk Festival, have joined with PMH to present Art in the Street, an exhibition exploring the history and impact of the festival's medium.
The creation and installation of chalk murals, some of which are site specific, and chalk drawing demonstrations are featured. Photographs, a video history, and artists' stories are included. Art in the Street is made possible in part by the Pasadena Arts & Culture Commission and the City of Pasadena Cultural Affairs Division.
