Design Group - Day Trippin'

On Thursday last, my design group had a day trip planned to head off to Pasadena, take in a couple of museums and have lunch. Well, the day went perfectly, we all had a great time and took home a bit (or more) of inspiration.

Here I'm going to start off by sharing one of my favorite parts of the current exhibit we saw - Action/Reaction at the Pasadena Museum of California Art

My reason for starting here is really my love of Sister Corita's book Learning By Heart -- funny thing how something seems to be in the air. Just last month someone mentioned a second printing of this book, and I chatted about the book in my August newsletter -- then wham, I run right into a wonderful (Sister Corita would be proud) exhibit showing a new generation using her graphic arts methods and just how much impact words, color & action can have. My own first printing copy of this book is well worn and dogeared -- a great guided journey to teach yourself how to see.

The pictures here were taken of the current exhibit... Enjoy!

Rose-I saw this exhibit today. It got my "creative juices flowing". Even the parking structure is fun! Also, visted the Offramp Gallery on Lincoln in Altadena. Great exhibit of Quinton Bemiller's paintings. Very colorful!
