Rotating Artwork Unveiled Citywide

artorangeThe City of Pasadena is taking artistic vision to the streets! Thanks to the new Rotating Public Art Exhibition Program, you’ll see fresh works of art every 18 months at nine prime spots citywide. Six eye-catching, colorful artworks are on loan, while three others were designed specifically for Pasadena. The exhibitions activate unusual locations, transforming small, often unnoticed areas in the city into exciting and stimulating destinations for visitors and residents.

The first-ever collection was chosen by a panel of arts professionals and community stakeholders representing every City Council district. The outdoor art gallery is designed to add life and vibrancy to our urban landscape, create more venues to showcase local artists, and encourage viewers to share ideas about what they see.

The inaugural collection will be dedicated on Saturday, March 10, at 10 a.m. at Sidney F. Tyler Park, on South Lake Avenue at Oakwood Place (south of California), and you’re invited. Street parking is available nearby.
