ArtNight Pasadena (Lionel's Group)

  • Mar 14, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Enjoy a free evening of art, music and entertainment as Pasadena’s most prominent arts and cultural institutions swing open their doors. Co-Organizer Lionel says, "If you're into art & music this event is a must! We did this event in 2013 and everyone had a blast! Riding the shuttle is just like a Party Bus--without the booze (wink). And it's a great deal. Normally these museums charge admission fees, the Norton Simon is $10. But they're free on ArtNight." 

There are three separate groups attending ArtNight from LA Free Concerts and we will all rendezvous for a Meet & Greet at El Cholo.

Last fall, 14,000 people experienced the excitement of ArtNight! Free shuttles will loop throughout the evening with stops at each venue. Park at any one venue and ride to the others. Also featuring some of LA County's favorite food trucks.

Unfortunately due to shuttle size limitations only a small number of members will be able to attend this event as part of LAFC. There are no tickets, no reservations. Click here for more info. 21 and over.


6:00 pm -- WEST ROUTE

Pasadena City Hall: enjoy lively musical entertainment

Armory Center for the Arts: Caught Looking exhibition of paintings. Slade Bellum and the Box Stompers perform.

    My sweet Abby, every person attending this event has enriched me in some way whether by being my wingman at an art gallery, words of support during the breakup, or just a simple hug. I'm privileged to call you friend.

    Hi Lionel, I know we're meeting at the Stage, which your map says is at the front of City Hall on Garfield. However, your "more info" link shows that the stage for MUSE/IQUE is on Garfield and Green Street (on the other side of the Paseo shopping center), near the beautiful Auditorium and Civic Center Plaza / ice rink tent - not the City Hall. Are there 2 different stages? Can you please clarify? Merci!

    March 13, 2014

    • Lionel

      Good question. Did you study cartography at UCLA? ;-) Yes. there are 2 stages. And we are meeting at the City Hall stage. We'll take the shuttle to MUSE/IQUE. De rien!

      March 13, 2014

  • Jen

    Lionel, Sorry I can't make it at 5:45pm so I thought I'd better give the spot to other people. You guys enjoy the night!

    Just been informed that I will have overtime tonight and tomorrow! I so disappointed.

    March 13, 2014

  • Lionel

    ATTENTION: time pushed back to 6 pm. We'll be at City Hall for about 15 min and then hop on a shuttle. So if you arrive by 6:15 you should be ok.

    1 · March 13, 2014

  • Shantel

    Lionel, can I bring my sweetie? We would love to be a part of this wonderful event. We both love art and the best part is, we get to support you and a great event. :)

    I didn't realize we were required to get there by 5:45. That's not going to happen unfortunately so I will give away my spot. Catch y'all next time.

  • Bud

    Soooo, if I only want to visit Norton Simon exhibits, I don't need to be in the group? I can just go there on my own and it's a free night? I'd prefer it if so...

    March 12, 2014

    • Lionel

      Aww Sherm, you hurt my feelings ;-) That's correct you can meander on your own.

    LIonel, I am not sure of the traffic going there from LA - will it be a problem if I am running late?

    1 · March 11, 2014

    • Lionel

      Once we leave the rendezvous it will be difficult to find us as we'll be riding the shuttle allover Pasadena.
