Pasadena Art & Design Open Market to Showcase World-Class Talent at One Colorado on Sunday, May 3, 2009

Over 100 Emerging Artists, Faculty and Alumni from Art Center College of Design and Pasadena City College to Sell Works of Art

PASADENA, Calif., April 7 /PRNewswire/ -- One Colorado's bi-annual Art + Design Open Market will take place on Sunday, May 3, 2009, 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. The one day event will host over 100 artists in the central Courtyard and pedestrian alleys, which is larger than any previous year.

The Open Market provides a rare opportunity for the public to interact with emerging and established artists from Pasadena's leading cultural institutions. It is especially unique in that all proceeds go directly to participating artists, thereby supporting individual careers and artistic expression.

Rochelle Branch, Pasadena's Cultural Affairs Manager, commented "The Art & Design Open Market is a perfect example of why Pasadena is such a strong draw for creativity in our region. We embrace opportunities for our own artists to be recognized and contribute to the economic vitality of the City."

Since its launch in 2003, the Open Market has provided visibility for more than 500 artists, and has served as a destination for thousands of art collectors and appreciators.

Participating institutions include Pasadena City College, which focuses on painting, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics, photography and illustration, and Art Center College of Design, which has a long legacy of graduating artists and designers who have significantly influenced our culture. Art Center's participating students, faculty and alumni stem from a variety of the College's art and design disciplines including fine art, illustration, photography, transportation design, graphics, product design, film and entertainment design. The Open Market is presented in part by Pasadena Magazine and KPCC 89.3 FM.

One Colorado is located on Colorado Boulevard between Fair Oaks Avenue, Union Street and DeLacey Avenue in Pasadena. Convenient parking is located in the adjacent multi-level structure at Fair Oaks and Union.
