The third annual BoldPas: A Day of Art & Play in Old Pasadena returns to the Old Pasadena historic district on Saturday, June 8, 2019.


BoldPas is a free, one-day-only community event that brings 16 temporary art installations and hands-on activations directly onto Old Pasadena’s historic pedestrian alleys.  Event-goers can grab a map (or view a Google map online) to plan out their self-guided tour of the installation sites. All artwork is located within Old Pasadena's late 19th-century alleys, which are lined with beautifully preserved architecture. 

BoldPas offers a fantastic opportunity to see and engage with installation art, stroll the unique urban alleyways of Old Pasadena, snap photos with large-scale and surprising artwork, and spend the day outdoors with family and friends. At every turn, visitors will encounter art that is BOLD – in color, scale, materials, and concept. Artists were chosen through a Call for Submissions; all artists are from the greater LA area and will be on hand throughout event day to showcase their installations and interact with the public. 

Many Old Pasadena businesses will host art activities in their stores and restaurants, and several will display their own bold installations on their storefronts. Additionally, the Armory Center for the Arts, sp[a]ce gallery at Ayzenberg, and other cultural institutions will welcome guests all day with experiential art activities.

BoldPas is free and all ages are welcome - many activities for designed for children. Come play for a day in Old Pasadena!
