The spring edition of ArtNight Pasadena is coming up!

On Friday, March 14 many of Pasadena’s museums and cultural institutions–including the Norton Simon Museum, The Armory Center for the Arts, and the USC Pacific Asia Museum–will stay open late, from 6 – 10 p.m., for an evening of arts, music, and entertainment. As always, event admission and activities will be free.

The popular event saw 14,000 people last fall. Parking in the area will vanish fast, but luckily the majority of ArtNight’s participating venues are easily accessible via the Metro Gold Line Memorial Park Station and various Metro buses. (See Trip Planner for more routes.) Or you can enjoy ArtNight Pasadena by bike with CICLE. Free shuttles will also loop throughout the evening with stops at each venue, so driving won’t be necessary at all!
