The quaint, tree-lined streets of the Playhouse District will play host Saturday to the second annual ArtWalk, part of the Pasadena ArtWeekend festivities.Art patrons along with those with a casual interest in the arts can experience Pasadena art culture at its finest and in its many forms.
ArtWalk was a crowd favorite when it debuted last year.
“The event has expanded from last year, offering attendees a wider sampling of a variety of art from local artists,” said Josefina Mora, marketing director for the Playhouse District Association.
Art from local painters, photographers and sculptors, including PCC students, will be on display and for sale as part of the juried Pasadena Street Scenes contest
ArtWalk will also feature art of the non-traditional variety, including ice-sculpting and pastry design.
Delicious-looking culinary art will be featured in the courtyard setting of the Arcade Lane at 696 E. Colorado Blvd.
The Pacific Asia Museum and the Pasadena Museum of California Art will offer free admission for the day. Similarly, neighborhood galleries will encourage passers-by to peak inside at ongoing exhibits.
For college students, those reduced prices and the free admission to ArtWalk may inspire an interest in local art culture.
Some restaurants are providing discounts on food for ArtWalk participants.
“What’s most appealing about ArtWalk for students is that it’s free,” said Mora. “They will have the opportunity to visit galleries and museums at no cost.
