Throughout the Old Pasadena District.

The Old Pasadena Management District presents its annual “BoldPas: A Day of Art and Play in Old Pasadena,” from 12 to 8 p.m. The pedestrian alleyways of the district feature 16 temporary art installations by a variety of artists and hands-on activities for adults and children. The installations are the result of many creative proposals from LA-area artists.  Artworks include a 50-foot canvas suspended above an alley, a sea of balloons that invites exploration, street artists transforming a wall with graffiti, murals, a pop-up tattoo parlor, shadow people who come to life and many more attractions. Admission to all activities and attractions is free. Visit the website for locations.

A highlight of Bold Pas is “Descubra” at the Armory Center for the Arts (145 N. Raymond Ave.) from 1-5pm.  The program is created by the Smithsonian Latino Center to inspire the next generation of science, history, and cultural enthusiasts, it features free, hands-on art making activities for all ages, live ukulele performances and workshops and informal conversations with arts and science professionals.
