Thanks to A. I have a weekend scoop for all those of you who want to support student artists in the area.
The yearly Open Market event at One Colorado (also known as Miller Alley) in Old Town Pasadena is happening this Sunday, May 3.
Here are the details from the website above:
Art + Design Open Market
Sunday, May 3, 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.
Now in its seventh year and featuring more than 100 artists, the Art & Design Open Market is an unparalleled gathering of talented Art Center College of Design and Pasadena City College students, alumni, faculty and staff. The Art & Design Open Market is free and open to the public.
Open Market is a rare opportunity to purchase exceptional contemporary art, sculpture, prints and photography by emerging artists. All work is original, one-of-a-kind and created by the artists themselves. The largest of its kind, this market is one of the few in the country to offer free space to event participants with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the artist.
Come and support student artists, buy great art, do something original, potentially free if you decide not to buy anything, and enjoy Old Town. I’ll see you there, I’m definitely check this out.
One Colorado is a pedestrian block marked by Union and Colorado to the North and South, and Delacey and Fair Oaks to the East and West. Park at the structure south of Colorado on Delacey (90 minutes free). Exit Old Town pasadena on the 134 or Fair Oaks on the 210.
