Vintage Photo Friday

Historic Armory Center for the Arts, Pasadena

Tonight, we're traveling to Pasadena to attend Art Night Pasadena. Our first stop will be the Armory Center for the Arts in Old Town Pasadena to see Speaking in Tongues: Wallace Berman and Robert Heinecken, 1961-1976, it's part of the Pacific Standard Time 6-month exhibition up and down the West Coast. In 1989, the name became the Armory Center for the Arts when this education branch of the old Pasadena Art Museum moved into the renovated National Guard Armory building.
Hopefully, we'll hit a few more art exhibits in the a
rea, snag a Zankou chicken sandwich and meet up with friends in beautiful Pasadena tonight. I do love Old Pasadena. It's full of fantastic, historic buildings. The Pasadena Heritage Society offers walking tours of the area.
One of my most favorite buildings is the old Hotel Green, now called the Castle Green Apartments. This grand apartment house was built as an annex to the Hotel Green in 1898. You can read more about it
here. Have a wonderful adventure this weekend!

Hey Ellen, you got the Armory's history spot on. You sound like you work here! I love that old photo of Castle Green. I don't think I've ever seen the building with the balconies, before. I guess it was torn down.
