Exhibition curator and art historian Julia Long continues her illustrated two-part lecture series on “Art and Artists of Pasadena” on Tuesday, Feb. 7, 7 p.m., hosted by the Pasadena Museum of History.
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.
In this lecture, 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.
