Events // Day trip to Pacific Asia Museum in Pasadena

Mar 29 - Mar 29

Overview // Join us for a day trip to Pasadena to visit the Pacific Asia Museum. Housed in a beautiful and historic building near vibrant downtown Pasadena, the Museum will feature three special exhibitions at the time of our visit:

"Focus on the Subject: The Art of the Harari Collection" features Japanese Edo (1603–1868) and Meiji (1868–1912) era paintings and drawings including ukiyo-e (“pictures of the floating world”); important prints, paintings and sketches by Hokusai, Hiroshige, and their schools; paintings by Kano, Tosa, Nanga, and Shijo schools; and decorative paintings.

"The Other Side: Chinese and Mexican Immigration to America" presents a collection of visual narratives about the Chinese and Mexican immigrant experiences through the works of five contemporary artists: Zhi Lin, Hung Liu, SLO artist Andrea Bowers, Tony de Los Reyes, and Margarita Cabrera.

"I Am Writing You Tomorrow," opening the day before our visit, introduces Israel-based multimedia artist Penny Hes Yassour. In this installation, Yassour pays homage to Chinese ink painting and calligraphy. This exhibit concludes a year-long series of exhibitions featuring contemporary perspectives on visual art from different Asian countries: Japan, Korea and Pakistan.
