At Home Series logo

At Home Series logoAnn Scheid, curator of the Greene and Greene Archives at The Gamble House will explore how Pasadena attracted a number of artists and artisans who formed a distinctive colony that flourished and eventually spread its influences in California in the early 20th century. The initial attraction was Throop Institute, a center of Arts and Crafts training where Ernest Batchelder activated a program in design. The focus will be on some of the key figures who lived and worked in Pasadena, who later became well-known and influential educators, artists, and artisans. This lecture will be held in the garden of a 1911 cottage in the historic Madison Heights neighborhood.

Program begins at 6:00 pm. All At Home programs take place at least in part outdoors. In case of rain, please consider your reservation a donation. Please note At Home events include walking and steps. Please no high heels.
