This week we have a great opportunity for students to learn about the history and impact of the Pasadena Art Museum. With the acceptance of the extensive Galka Scheyer collection of Feininger, Kandinsky, Klee, and Jawlensky in 1954, the Pasadena Art Museum began 20 years of extraordinary exhibitions and collecting, made possible by exceptional directors and curators. From the internationally celebrated retrospective of Marcel Duchamp to the first Andy Warhol retrospective and beyond, the museum made major contributions to the cultural life of the Los Angeles region.
Pacific Asia Museum’s exhibion 46 N. Los Robles: A History of the Pasadena Art Museum is closing this weekend. On Thursday, 4/5, guest curator Jay Belloli will give a lecture and slide show on the Pasadena Art Museum in our 1010 Westwood Center. Then this Saturday, students will visit both Pacific Asia Museum and the Norton Simon to view works up close and meet one of the participating artists. It should be a fun and informative session for anyone interested in the history of the Los Angeles art scene.
