We Really Enjoyed Visiting The Pasadena Museum of California Art! Back on Saturday, August 27, 2015, I went to visit this wonderful art museum with Anthony, BJ and Diego! We all had such a very nice time visiting there. When we were there, we saw three different art exhibits featuring: Claire Falkenstein: Beyond Sculpture Brett Weston: Significant Details Kat Hutter and Roger Lee: Another California Day All of the artists' work was well worth the visit! Furthermore, this art museum showcases art and design originating from California and was founded by long-time Pasadena residents and art collectors Robert and Arlene Oltman. The Ground was broken in 2000 and the museum officially opened in June 2002. Please Note: The museum does not house a permanent collection, but instead features changing exhibits. Notable exhibitions have included Maynard Dixon: Masterpieces from the Brigham Young University and Private Collections, the largest exhibition of Dixon's art to date; Wayne Thiebaud: 70 Years of Painting, a retrospective survey; Data + Art: Science and Art in the Age of Information, organized in conjunction with Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and a mid-career retrospective of painter Mark Ryden. The museum hosts the California Design Biennial. I more than highly recommend this art museum on your next visit to Pasadena, California! Thank you. Sincerely yours, Howard Paul Shore Anthony DeGoede BJ Diego Visitors
The price of admission is as good as the exhibits. PMCA has free midsize indoor parking designed with kosmic art. The museum's galleries showcase breadth of art and design by different artist across the country from abstract photography to colorful canvas. Visitors can easily breeze through the art exhibits in an hour.

Great exhibits and a well-sized museum store. Easy access, free parking in a garage painted in surreal Krylon paint!
The exhibitions here are always wonderful. But the thing I like most is the gift shop. The gift shop contains a lot of treasures. If you are on a budget and you really want to go, visit during Pasadena's ARTNight which occurs twice a year. Entrance is free during ARTNight.
