Save the date! Old Pasadena Management District announces the third annual BoldPas: A Day of Art & Play in Old Pasadena, scheduled for Saturday, June 8, 2019 in the commercial and historic heart of Pasadena, California – Old Pasadena.
The free, one-day event encourages the community to experience art in myriad ways within the district’s unique downtown alleyways and public spaces. The selected temporary art installations are bold – in color, scale, materials, and concept. Many of them incorporate a component of interactivity – come play with the art!
The 2017 and 2018 events filled the district with fantastic community spirit, bright color, a sense of local pride, and a wide range of attendees that included hip millennials, young families, eco-urban enthusiasts, and seasoned art lovers. In 2019, visitors will once again have the opportunity to meet selected and commissioned artists who remain on site throughout the event to engage with the public. Local businesses will entice visitors with storefronts decorated in surprising ways.
The 2019 Call for Submissions has been released. Artists in the greater Los Angeles area are encouraged to submit proposals by March 15, 2019 for consideration; six of the 12 event installations will be selected from this call. Find the Call for Submissions, photos, inspiration boards, and more on the event website: www.oldpasadena.org/boldpas.
