ArtNight, Pasadena’s biannual celebration of creativity, invited thousands to celebrate art in all forms on Friday night. This citywide event featured photo-modernist work by the E.O. Hoppé Estate Collection archive at Curatorial Assistance, a dance performance at A Room to Create by The Pennington Dance Group and Radio Imagination: The Exhibition as well as many other venues and exhibits.

Food trucks and unofficial stops like the Passion exhibit of local art by the Women’s City Club, in conjunction with tours of the historic Blinn House, added to the festive atmosphere.

We spoke with guests at Pasadena City Hall and found out why they decided to come to ArtNight. Here’s what they had to say:

“We’re just looking forward to a wonderful evening,” said Nancy and David, this will be their first ArtNight.

Damaris and Gilberto recently moved to Pasadena from San Diego and are looking forward to exploring the city and seeing the Light Bringer Project at Day One.

People participating in a Meetup group said they are excited about “everything.”

ArtNight was a curate-your-own-adventure and provided a diverse array of arts events around the city.

Look forward to ArtNight again in the spring and visit http://www.artnightpasadena.org/.
