It's been a busy couple of weeks for Pasadena's Armory Center for the Arts, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary year with the exhibition Installations Inside/Out. It began with skywriting art last week, followed up by eight public art installations around the city, an hour-and-a-half theatre show performed in a busy intersection during 15-second crosswalk-intervals and a large gallery show featuring and supporting Southern California artists.

Installations Inside/Out pays tribute to nonprofit center's 20 years of exhibition history by commissioning 20 contemporary artists to do installations inside and around Pasadena. It runs through December 31st with many of the public art installations and performances continuing through then (check the schedule here).
