    Exposure: Native Art and Political Ecology

    to

    The Armory Center for the Arts presents the exhibition titled Exposure: Native Art and Political Ecology, opening on Friday, January 27, and on view through Sunday, June 11, 2023. This exhibition documents international Indigenous artists’ responses to the impacts of radiation and toxic waste on Native peoples and the environment. The work of the 36 artists and collectives, most of whom identify as Indigenous, is centered around the impact that nuclear testing, uranium mining, and the subsequent contamination have had on the colonized peoples and their ancestral, unceded lands of present-day Australia, Canada, Greenland, the US, Japan, and the Pacific Islands. The exhibition presents an interdisciplinary mixture of forms and genres, including sculpture, video installation, photography, collage, glasswork, metalwork, fiber, paintings, and virtual-reality experiences. The works tell personal stories of illness, struggle, and resilience in the face of corporate willfulness and government complicity.

    Exposure was first presented in August 2021 at the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico, a contemporary art venue operated by the Institute of American Indian Arts, and was organized by a curatorial team led by MoCNA’s Chief Curator Manuela Well-Off-Man. The exhibition and its accompanying hardcover catalogue were made possible with support from the Ford Foundation and the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. This will be the first west coast presentation of this poignant exhibition which, following its premiere at MoCNA, will be presented at the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture Museum (Saginaw, MI) and the El Paso Museum of Art (TX) in addition to the Armory.

    Old Pasadena Walking Tour

    to
    Saturday : 10:00am–11:15am

    Pasadena Heritage offers their popular in-person Old Pasadena Walking Tour on first Saturdays in 2023 beginning on February 4, and continuing every other month.  Old Pasadena Management District is a proud sponsor of these educational and enjoyable tours of our historic district.  

    February’s tour will include historic Dayton Street and some of our first Black-owned businesses, the first fire station, and Friendship Baptist Church. It also includes Mills Place, the location of what the LA Times would call “The Night of Terror.” Learn the story of how the burning of a Chinese laundry began the expulsion from Pasadena’s first commercial district of our Chinese population.

    This tour features the ruins of Pasadena’s second library, a historic theatre that is now readapted as condominiums, and perhaps one of the most controversial preservation stories regarding an entire block that was saved.

    Old Pasadena has had many transformations over its many years as our first commercial center. Without Pasadena Heritage, this National Register Historic District would have been destroyed! Now it is one of the finest examples of downtown revitalization in the country. Let one of their trained docents lead you through the historic neighborhood and reveal its many hidden and unusual architectural details, old alleyways, and historic signs. Tours last approximately 1.5 hours with a walking distance of approximately 1 mile.

    Two-Part Artists and Craftsmen Lecture Series

    Around the turn of the 20th century, Pasadena attracted many artists and craftsmen. Eventually, the Crown City became synonymous with arts and crafts movements and artistic organizations. Join exhibition curator and art historian Julia Long for this illustrated two-part lecture series and learn about these amazing artists and their crafts.

    Part One: Artists, Bohemians & Craftsmen of the Arroyo

    Tuesday, January 24 | 7:00 pm

    The Arroyo Seco and the winding streets overlooking it were a hotbed of creative activity in the early 20th century, enticing many artists, bohemians, and craftspeople. Due to the talents of people like tilemaker Ernest Batchelder, printmaker Frances Gearhart, and architects Charles and Henry Greene, Pasadena became one of the centers of the American Arts & Crafts movement (one of only three in the country!) Learn about Pasadena’s role in cultivating this movement and the people whose skills - as well as their varied interests in history and multicultural sources of inspiration - made it successful.

    Part Two: Art & Artists of Pasadena

    Tuesday, February 7 | 7:00 pm

    From its early days, many artists moved to Pasadena, motivated by its quality of light and the picturesque scenery of the San Gabriel mountains and the Arroyo Seco. By the late 19th century, Pasadena’s citizens had already started to establish artists’ collectives, salons, and training centers, and talented painters and sculptors quickly found patrons and eager buyers for their art. Learn about Pasadena’s artists - both homegrown and transplants from all over the world, working in every type of media from watercolor to block prints, Plein air painting to sculpture - as well as the organizations and schools that helped to cultivate and expand their roles in a growing society.

    Old Pasadena Walking Tour

    to
    Saturday : 10:00am–11:15am

    Pasadena Heritage offers their popular in-person Old Pasadena Walking Tour on first Saturdays in 2023 beginning on February 4, and continuing every other month.  Old Pasadena Management District is a proud sponsor of these educational and enjoyable tours of our historic district.  

    February’s tour will include historic Dayton Street and some of our first Black-owned businesses, the first fire station, and Friendship Baptist Church. It also includes Mills Place, the location of what the LA Times would call “The Night of Terror.” Learn the story of how the burning of a Chinese laundry began the expulsion from Pasadena’s first commercial district of our Chinese population.

    This tour features the ruins of Pasadena’s second library, a historic theatre that is now readapted as condominiums, and perhaps one of the most controversial preservation stories regarding an entire block that was saved.

    Old Pasadena has had many transformations over its many years as our first commercial center. Without Pasadena Heritage, this National Register Historic District would have been destroyed! Now it is one of the finest examples of downtown revitalization in the country. Let one of their trained docents lead you through the historic neighborhood and reveal its many hidden and unusual architectural details, old alleyways, and historic signs. Tours last approximately 1.5 hours with a walking distance of approximately 1 mile.
