Held in the Shops at South Lake Avenue during three days, the Pasadena Art Alliance Treasure Sale skimmed the cream of the crop from members’ attics and garages.

Funds raised at the Treasure Sale go to support yearly grants that are awarded to local arts organizations from Pasadena to East LA to Pomona and beyond. Since 1976, the Pasadena Art Alliance has awarded over $6 million in support of the area’s local nonprofits.

The Pasadena Art Alliance originally began its work in 1955, forming to support the Pasadena Art Museum. It filed its own non-profit status in 1975, following the purchase of the museum by industrialist Norton Simon. As the group notes on its website, it “remains an ever inventive and dynamic organization of over 175 women who share a deep belief in the increasingly diverse and important art of our time.”
