The sixth annual Pasadena Art Walk will take place Saturday, Oct. 15 in downtown Pasadena’s historic playhouse district. The event will feature the work of 25 artists and will serve as an opportunity for both attendees and vendors to engage in the city’s vibrant art scene.
In addition to the outdoor Art Walk and sale on El Molino Avenue, art spaces including Gallerie Gabrie will be opening their doors to the public during the event. Vroman’s Bookstore, in conjunction with the Pasadena Society of Artists, will be hosting art-themed panel discussions throughout the day, and admission to the Pasadena Museum of California Art will be free to Art Walk attendees.
Local restaurants and coffee shops will also offer discounts to hungry art lovers, and the Donovan/Muradian Quintet will serenade the crowd with light jazz. Coolhaus Ice Cream will also be on the scene to sell sweet treats.
“The playhouse district is Pasadena’s center for culture, commerce and community,” Erlinda Romo, an Art Walk organizer, said. “We have a very strong art scene here in the district with the playhouse, Boston Court Performing Arts Center, the Ice House comedy club, two museums and Vroman’s Bookstore. The Art Walk is a way to highlight the artistic nature of the district and bring it out into a public area rather than putting it all into a museum. We want people to see everything that is available in the district.”
