The Dynamic Landscape: Closing Night
It's the last night of a solo art show by a Canadian expat living down here in Los Angeles. It's at the Armory Center for the Arts, in Pasadena. Michael Markowsky created many of these works while he served as artist-in-resident at One Colorado, also in Pasadena. Last November and December, he set up his easel outside in the courtyard and made a painting everyday, answering questions and interacting with passersby.
