We normally think of the creative, artsy people as a small population, living on the edges of life. We the masses live in the BnW world, part of the synchronized workforce, even sometimes driving leased BnW’s
However here in Pasadena we have a strong creative force. Our creative teams often play their parts on the main stages and center courts of the city. And the masses play minor, extra roles on the edges of the life stage. Sure, these ‘psychedelic” people aren’t as large as the masses. It may seem they could all fit in a bus.
Where can you find these eccentric but artistically minded individuals? Art Center College of Design has been a major production source, Pasadena Weekly has a weekly calendar of artsy events, the famous Vromans bookstore, you can walk Old Town Pasadena and see someone playing streetmusic, my blogroll on the right has a few dozen artists, city sponsored/promoted civic art can be found throughout, etc. Really, the list is long but it won’t be long before you discover many creative sources of talent in Pasadena.
But there’s always one sure place you can find them – I know, cuz I see them and hear them: at any of the Cafes I visit.
