Free Day: 2017 Museums of the Arroyo Day at PMH
May 21, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
It’s fun, free, and only one day a year! Join us for the annual Museum Free Day – Museums of the Arroyo Day – on Sunday, May 21. Six museums in Los Angeles and Pasadena will open their doors – free of charge – from 12 to 5 pm and provide shuttles to transport you to and from the various locations throughout the afternoon.
Here at PMH, visitors will enjoy two new exhibitions that take a look at art from different perspectives. Art in the Street: 25 Years of the Pasadena Chalk Festival celebrates the silver anniversary of one of the area’s most popular art attractions. The Art of Getting There: Railroad Inspired Artistry explores how railroads, the apex of the Industrial Revolution’s might and power, have inspired artists since their introduction.
Visitors will also enjoy mini-tours of historic Fenyes Mansion, tours of the Finnish Folk Art Museum, and a special model train display from the ’20s, ’30s and Beyond Model Railroad. Be inspired by a chalk artist in the act of creating a mural, and beautify the campus with your own chalk masterpiece!
