    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.

    A Breach in the Realm of Beliefs

    to

    After examining vectors of oppression down to the quantum scale, Jennifer Moon returns from her adventures of mapping shame and trauma within forms of identification to present a new musical video installation ignited by a rejuvenated commitment to fantasy and magic.

    Inspired by two iconic songs—”How Far I’ll Go” and “I Am Moana (Song of the Ancestors)”—from the 3D-animated musical film Moana, A Breach in the Realm of Beliefs offers a sincere attempt to retrieve lost faith by re-orientating and repurposing Disney’s commodification of feel-good inspirational music to instill an emotional call to revolution that cannot be silenced. Bracketed between these two musical videos is a third video element that will be released in parts, evolving and expanding throughout the exhibition, chronicling the artist’s efforts in “real time” to implement her revolutionary goals in life and love. 

    In addition to her solo exhibition in the Armory’s Mezzanine Gallery East, Jennifer Moon has joined forces with the artist laub to create Mr. Snuggles FOREVER, a magic-infused installation in the stairwell of the Armory celebrating the life, death, and afterlife of Mr. Snuggles, Moon’s beloved canine familiar who has become a symbol of revolutionary relational love.

    Armory galleries are open daily from 12 to 5 pm (closed Tuesdays). Admission is always free.

    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.

    Explore great architecture, historical discoveries, family fun and entertainment for free at six local museums -- including Pasadena's Gamble House, Pasadena Museum of History -- during the 2018 Museums of the Arroyo (MOTA) Day.

    Climb into a retired LAPD helicopter, check out blacksmith demonstrations, craft a spaceship, and discover what continues to make the Arroyo Seco a bustling, vibrant arts-driven community that crosses neighborhoods and social boundaries.

    MOTA Day takes place from noon to 5 p.m. with last entry at 4:00pm. 

    Special events at the Pasadena locations include:

    The Gamble House: Visitors can tour the 1908 Arts and Crafts gem that is on the National Registry of Historic Places; free refreshments. Check out a Back to the Future style DeLorean “Time Machine” and visit with Doc Brown – his house was the Gamble House Bookstore. Kids and adults can play lawn games and explore the crafts table.

    Pasadena Museum of History: Visitors can view the current exhibition “Dreaming the Universe: The Intersection of Science, Technology and Southern California.”  Kids can craft their own spaceship and/or rocket. Star Wars volunteer costume groups will be on hand for photographs and more. The Arcane Theatre Works will present a series of readings from “Martians – An Evening with Ray Bradbury.” Additionally, guests can take a mini-tour of the Fenyes Mansion as well as the Finnish Folk Museum a replica of a 19th Century Finnish farmhouse.

    Free shuttles connect all museums so visitors can park their car once to experience the arts, culture and history of the Arroyo. See MOTA website for parking locations, shuttles routes and other MOTA Day information.

    With so much to do and see – and only a few hours to do it – visitors are encouraged to best plan their visits and to pace themselves accordingly. Organizers stress that guests should plan to visit no more than three museums for a satisfying MOTA Day experience.
