Get your walking shoes ready to step all over town this Saturday, Aug. 12, during BoldPas – An Art Takeover of Old Pasadena. From noon to 8 pm,
There will be temporary art installations in historic alleyways, muralist Andrew Hem will be painting “live” in Mercantile Alley, about 30 art shops and restaurants will be open and welcoming you in with artful backdrops for your selfies. You can do a self-guided tour by following this map (there will also be printed maps at the information booths on Saturday), or you can join one of two guided tours (at 1:30 pm and 5 pm.) by paying $10 and reserving your space.
This event should be a great way to enjoy creativity while getting to know the merchants in our town. Looking through the list of art shops and restaurants that will be part of it, I realized I’ve only been inside two of them! That leaves me with a long list of possibilities. How about you?
Also, if you are curious about the type of art that you can look forward to, check out the pictures of the artists’ installation proposals by scrolling down on this page. I’m looking forward to taking a picture in Ash Cano’s “Rose Garden” (pictured above) and Paul Heintz’ “Colorful Cacti.” By the way, you can read about each of the artists on this page.
It should be a fun day in the streets of Old Pasadena this upcoming Saturday. Plan to be there with your camera, and don’t forget your sunscreen (maybe even a hat!) because the Sun will be there too!
