    Armory Exhibition: Birth Death Breath

    to

    The Armory Center for the Arts presents Diane Christiansen and Jeanne Dunning's Birth Death Breath, an opera “performed” by inflatable lawn decorations in various stages of inflation and deflation. As the characters rise from the ground and begin to sing, they experience their inflation as a kind of coming back to life, prompting them to ponder great existential questions about life, death, purpose, and meaning through their songs.

    Armory galleries are open Wednesdays through Mondays (closed Tuesdays) from 12 noon to 5:00pm. Admission is always free.

    The Armory Center for the Arts, housed in Pasadena’s historical 1932 National Guard Building, serves as the city’s hub for art education in its myriad forms. It originated as the education department of the Pasadena Art Museum in 1947 with classes led by artists whose teaching concepts grew out of the museum's exhibitions of modern art. This education program became known as the Pasadena Art Workshops after the museum closed in 1974. Without a permanent space for exhibitions, the workshops used professional artists as teachers and focused on the development of arts programs that presented alternative forms of learning. By working in partnerships with schools, libraries, parks, neighborhood groups, community centers, and city agencies, the museum’s programs brought the arts to new audiences – a trend that continues to this day.

    Opening in its permanent space on Raymond Avenue in 1989, the center underwent a $2.4 million transformation in 2002 to create an additional 6,800 square feet of classrooms and studio spaces for drawing and painting, digital arts, and photography. Today it offers a wide range of programs and studio classes for all ages, as well as exhibitions in its galleries, year around.  Galleries are open daily from noon - 5:00pm, and closed on Tuesdays.

    The Pasadena Senior Center celebrates Black History Month with a special lecture: The Robinsons in Pasadena: A Life Between Segregation and Integration.

    Professor Amy Essington, historian and executive director of the Historical Society of Southern California, will present a program about her new research into the Robinson Family in Pasadena.

    “In the Far West, the system of racism was not the formal system found in the South. It was instead a more fluid and uncertain system which people of color had to navigate. Africans Americans in Pasadena lived a reality experienced by many people of color in Southern California in the 1920s and 1930s. Mallie Robinson and her five children, Edgar, Frank, Mack, Willa Mae, and Jackie, lived in a community that straddled segregation and integration. Their experiences show the racism, discrimination, and opportunity for African Americans in Pasadena before World War II."

    Refreshments will be provided. There is not charge for this program but it is necessary RSVP at the Welcome Desk or by calling 626 795-4331.

    Registration is now open for March Home. Every person deserves a life of dignity and a safe place to call home. Tragically, there are far too many people in the community who are living on the streets, in cars, or in emergency shelters.  On any given night, 57,794 people are homeless in the County of Los Angeles. Here in the San Gabriel Valley, more than 3,552 people have nowhere to call home. You can change that. You can be part of the solution. This event is rain or shine.
