Museums for Free: MOTA Day 05/19/13

Everybody loves free, including me!!  This May 19, 2013 you can see five museums for free!! Besides free access to the Gamble House, Heritage Square, the Los Angeles Police Museum, the Lummis Home & Garden, and our own Pasadena Museum of History—which is a whopping gift in and of itself—each location will have a variety of music, storytelling, art, crafts, and entertainment!! This is a great offer and I strongly suggest you take this opportunity to see at least one!

The Gamble House is offering tours of this 1908 Arts and Crafts treasure and kids can do crafts in their lovely backyard.

Heritage Square will observe the Spanish American War by having a “live” encampment, and there will be woodcarving demonstrations and traditional dancing. Children can play with Victorian toys, do crafts, and learn about plants and flowers in the Ford House Kitchen garden.

The L.A. Police Museum features private collections and historical memorabilia dating back to the 1800s, including the newly constructed vehicle shelter and a restored 1955 paddy wagon. Kids can clamor into a police helicopter, try on gear, and get “locked” into a real jail cell, while parents can snap free police booking photos (a family keepsake!). Attendees can also tour the current exhibit, “Gangster Squad,” as well as the permanent exhibits: Onion Field murders, the Patty Hearst kidnapping, and the 1997 North Hollywood Shootout.

The Lummis Home and Garden will be open for self-guided tours and historian Dennis Harbach will use a newly developed computer app to be able to answer such burning questions as “Did my grandmother dance the fandango with Lummis or Rudolf Valentino in this place?” From 1897-1928 the Lummis Home was a “place to see and be seen” for “visiting and local dignitaries, artists, and controversial public figures.”

Pasadena Museum of History is offering mini-tours of the newly remodeled Fenyes Mansion and the Finnish Folk Museum, which is housed in a replica of a 19th century Finnish farmhouse. Pasadena Society of Artists will be displaying, selling, and creating works during the afternoon. Don’t miss the fantastic I Do! I Do! Pasadena Ties the Knot exhibit and the juried art exhibition Relationships. Kids can take home three different art projects involving a rain stick, a Japanese brush painting, and a family colla. Pie ‘n Burger (celebrating its 50th anniversary) will be on site with their food truck, ready to satisfy hungry museum goers.

If you get a chance to go, let me know which one you went to and what your experience was!  Have fun!!

 

 


The Ultimate Classic Hollywood Experience

The Ultimate Classic Hollywood Experience

April 25–28, 2013  Things to do in Hollywood this weekend!

For years and years I have wanted to go but unfortunately the cost of this event has not allowed me to do so.  The cheapest total event pass starts at $249 per person.  I have thought of just hanging out in the area just to people watch as that can be just as fun sometimes.  The Turner Classic Movie channel has an annual event where they show classic films on the big screen and have lots of actors and actresses old and new come in and do commentary.

You can buy individual event passes for $20 for general audiences, $10 with valid student I.D. for most events. Individual tickets are $30 for general audiences, $15 with valid student I.D

Please note: Individual tickets will NOT be sold for the Opening Night Red Carpet Gala screening of FUNNY GIRL (1968) or Club TCM events – including panels – as these are exclusive events for pass holders (depending on pass level).

Please note: Children under the age of 4 are not admitted to any Festival events.

Please click this link to see the film festival schedule: http://filmfestival.tcm.com/programs/schedule-thursday.php  For movie nerds like us, this event is a guaranteed good time.  If you go, please share your experience here!!


Check out your local artwalk!

Ok, so I am a little late on this but in time I will be on top of things! This past weekend was the Pomona Artwalk in downtown Pomona where the art culture is rich in the Inland Empire.

If you are in the IE and want something to do, every second Saturday of the month Pomona has an art walk that is full of galleries having shows, providing snacks and sometimes wine, local bars, and lots of restaurants to grab something to eat during your journey.  It is several blocks of all of the above and a guaranteed good night for all.  There is also local events all month long in the downtown art district  like the weekend Farmers Market and every last Saturday of the month is the Pomona Night Out Classic Car show.  Several times a year there is the Antique Rows collectors Street Faire (Next one is on May 25, 2013 8am-3pm). (This is so dangerous for me not to spend every last time on the treasures found here!
