    how we are in time and space

    to

    Armory Center for the Arts is pleased to present how we are in time and space: Nancy Buchanan, Marcia Hafif, and Barbara T. Smith, a major group exhibition of work by Nancy Buchanan, Marcia Hafif, and Barbara T. Smith opening Friday, January 28 through Sunday, June 12, 2022. This long-awaited historical survey, presented in the Armory’s expansive Caldwell Gallery, is the first to focus on the collaborations and empathic intersections between three remarkable artists in the form of drawing, photography, collage, video, performance documentation, and architectural proposals comprising over 50 years of art making. An appointment is required to view the exhibition. Admission is free.

    This exhibition is shaped by the forces of proximity, friendship, generosity, and longevity. BuchananHafif, and Smith met in the newly formed MFA program at UC Irvine and remained friends for life. Structured around the subjects of bodies, communication, and dwelling, this exhibition reveals a remarkable range of pursuits explored by the three artists for the past 50 years. Though each followed their own trajectory, this exhibition highlights the differences as well as the "empathic overlaps" of these life-long friends. Organized by guest curator Michael Ned Holte.

    Old Pasadena Walking Tour

    to

    Pasadena Heritage once again offers the in-person bi-monthly edition of the Old Pasadena Walking Tour, the organization's most popular tour. Explore Old Pasadena with an experienced docent, see the renaissance, and enjoy the architectural variety, fascinating history, virtually unchanged alleyways, and all the authentic details that keep history alive in the 21st Century. Each tour will have a slightly different route and theme so each tour will be slightly different but each lasting approximately one hour and covering a distance of about one mile.

    Pasadena's original downtown, once slated for demolition, is now a shopping and dining destination attracting thousands of visitors every month. Without Pasadena Heritage, this National Register Historic District would have been leveled and all its history and architecture destroyed. Instead, today it is one of the finest examples of downtown revitalization in the country.

    Old Pasadena In-Person Walking Tour

    Saturdays bi-monthly in 2022:
    February 5, April 2, June 4, August 6, October 1, and December 3

    From Life After Manzanar to Clark and Division

    The Pasadena Museum of History presents From Life After Manzanar to Clark and Division: A Conversation between Naomi Hirahara and Heather C. Lindquist on Tuesday, May 24, 2022, at  7:00pm.

    In 2018, authors Naomi Hirahara and Heather Lindquist co-wrote Life After Manzanar, an engaging account of resettlement after people of Japanese ancestry were wrongfully imprisoned during World War II. Life After Manzanar inspired Naomi Hirahara to write Clark and Division, a fiction/mystery novel which tells the story of the Ito family relocating to Chicago after their release from Manzanar detention center only to find out their eldest daughter, Rose, had been killed by a subway train. Both books reveal the struggles in resettlement – giving us a glimpse into the real-life experiences that so many people of Japanese ancestry endured during the 1940s.

    Join Naomi and Heather for this one-on-one conversation as they discuss research behind both books, and how non-fiction leads to fiction – Life After Manzanar to the captivating fiction/mystery, Clark and Division.

    Please Note:  In the interest of everyone’s safety while at the Museum, they are requiring masks and proof of vaccination for entry.
