Free Mass Transit and Art Collide in Glendale This weekend.
I found out from a few artist friends of mine that this weekend is going to be a good one for Art in Glendale. Glendale Parks and Recreation with the Glendale Art and Culture Commission joined forces with several Galleries and they will have a giant Open Studio Tour of local art and artists.
Saturday 9/13/08 from 3-5PM is the opening Artists Reception at the Brand Library. It is Free. The exhibit at the Brand will include one piece from all of the participating artists showing in the city wide Open Studio Tour. That exhibit will run 9/9-9/19.
Sunday 9/14 Is the city wide Open Studio Tour runs from Noon to 6PM. The added bonus is if you prefer to use public transit you can use Metrolink to get you to the Glendale Transportation Center. From there you can catch either Metro or City buses to get you to the Brand Library or Downtown Glendale. Once at the Brand or the Alex Theatre in the heart of Glendale’s old downtown you can catch FREE Beeline buses set up to take you to a variety of designated stops on the Open Studio Tour routes. Of course you can use your own car if you don’t mind some traffic and set up your own route.
