    Dreaming the Universe: The Intersection of Science, Fiction, & Southern California

    to

    Pasadena Museum of History's exhibition Dreaming the Universe: The Intersection of Science, Fiction, & Southern California ventures into the world of science fiction that was created right here in Southern California between the 1930s and 1980s and how it interacted with the advances of science, the changes in technology, and shifts in American society. Curated by Nick Smith, former president of Los Angeles Science Fantasy Society, the exhibition will bring together an unusual range of artifacts, fine and graphic arts, books, ephemera, and photographs.

    From the comic strip space hero Buck Rogers in the 1930s to the dystopian depiction of Los Angeles in Blade Runner (1982), the parallel worlds, alternative universes, and culturally unique societies depicted in science fiction contrasted sharply with cultural and political norms of the day. Science fiction is often regarded as the literature of the imagination, but it was here in Southern California that the worlds of speculation, science, and society overlapped in ways that helped change the world.

    Southern California ushered in the Rocket Age in 1936 with the first rocket tests in Pasadena's Arroyo Seco. The growth of the aeronautics industry in the area was closely paralleled by the growth of the creative science fiction community. Dreaming the Universe will examine visionary creators – Ray Bradbury, Octavia Butler, Frank Kelly Freas, Syd Mead, Emil Petaja, and Edgar Rice Burroughs – and the books, fanzines, art, and media they created. Attention will also be given to the fans of science fiction, individuals such as Forrest Ackerman, as well as fan organizations.

    The Pasadena Museum of History’s collections, exhibits, and programs provide educational resources for the public to increase understanding and appreciation of history, culture, and science in Pasadena and neighboring communities. Founded in 1924 as the Pasadena Historical Society, the Pasadena Museum of History operates the only Museum and Research Library devoted solely to preserving and educating the community about the history of Pasadena and the west San Gabriel Valley.

    The Museum's valuable archival collection includes over 1,000,000 historical photographs, original manuscripts, books, maps, architectural records, costumes, and other artifacts. Spanning the years 1850 to present, this is the largest and most comprehensive collection relating to the history of the west San Gabriel Valley. Significant collections include the Tournament of Roses Collection, Pasadena Black History Collection, Pasadena Star-News historic archives, and the Sylvanus Marston Architectural Collection.

    Since 1970, the Museum has been headquartered on the 2.1-acre grounds of the Fenyes Estate, a Pasadena Cultural Landmark that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Museum's 1906 Beaux Arts Fenyes Mansion contains approximately thirteen rooms with original Victorian furnishing and a historically significant painting collection. Named for its founders, Eva and Adalbert Fenyes, the home became a California version of the kind of "salon" popular on the East Coast and in Europe.

    12:00pm–5:00pm

    Akunnittinni: A Kinngait Family Portrait chronicles three generations of Inuit artists—Pitseolak Ashoona (1904-1983), her daughter Napachie Pootoogook (1938-2002), and granddaughter Annie Pootoogook (1969-2016).

    The prints and drawings on view depict nuanced depictions of family and village life in Kinngait, as well as sardonic references to pop culture that have now penetrated everyday life in this remote community in the Canadian Arctic. Kinngait is known internationally for its artwork, and the three women in this exhibition are among the most well regarded artists of this region.

    Join us at 5:00 pm on Saturday, June 30 for an exhibition walk-through with curator Andrea R. Hanley, followed immediately by an opening reception from 6:00 to 8:00 pm. The walk-through and reception are free and open to the public.

    Marta Chaffee: The Places We've Lived

    to
    12:00pm–5:00pm

    Marta Chaffee’s practice draws from California landscapes and the implied freedom of the American West. This exhibition, organized by her daughter Aandrea Stang, showcases paintings and drawings that relate to the artist's numerous road trips—from mundane, local stoplight views, to vistas inspired by the Golden State Freeway or Interstate 395, which she often traveled to visit family in the Eastern Sierras. In her paintings and drawings, Chaffee has mapped locations she often returned to by necessity or choice, organizing both observed and invented views as seen through her windshield.

    Please join the Armory for an opening reception with the artist on Saturday, June 30 from 6:00-8:00 pm. This reception is free an open to the public.

    A Culinary & Cultural Journey Through Greece


    7:30pm

    Enjoy an exploration of Greece’s rich culinary heritage with notes on culture, historic sites, local lifestyles and traditions, and spirit of place through some of Greece’s lesser known regions. 

    Recently returned from a three month journey in Greece and the Mediterranean, Lindsay is eager to share stories, tips, and inspirations from her latest travels to this enduring and vibrant destination. On this trip she met with archaeologists, professors, wine producers, chefs, home cooks, dancers and musicians, guides, and ‘alternative tourism’ professionals eager to provide an authentic ‘real taste’ of Greece to visitors. 

    Greece is surprisingly diverse; from its myriad islands to its many historical sights, to the dry, rocky landscape and unique tower houses of the deep Mani, to the wild mountains and gorges of northern Greece, variations abound.

    The history is deep here, and the flavors are vibrant. The sea, the sun, and the soil seem to enrich Greece’s tables with their very essence, as they have for centuries. This talk will highlight some of Greece’s culinary specialties by region, as well as reference geography, history, culture, and personal stories.

    The event is free, and phone reservations are appreciated. 

    About the speaker:

    Lindsay is a travel coordinator, guide, writer, and destination researcher specializing in Greece and the Mediterranean, though her work extends beyond the shores of the beautiful blue Med. She coordinates small group trips with a culinary focus and works with individuals to facilitate meaningful, unique, customized travel experiences. She also organizes theme dinners, wine tastings, hands-on cooking workshops, and small private events that highlight the cuisine of a particular region.
