Pasadena bus riders have the chance to be the first to see student artwork displayed in bus shelters across the city – part of the Arts and Culture Commission’s “Bridging Boundaries” exhibit. Pasadena culture.

The artwork was selected from Pasadena Unified School District’s district-wide student art project called “No Boundaries,” which is now in its 17th year.

The 2022 “No Boundaries” exhibit opened on Paseo Colorado in time for Spring ArtNight in April.

For the past few years, these selected works of art have been framed and displayed outside the Council Chambers at City Hall. This student art wall program was later modified and adapted to an online platform typically displaying up to 50 works of art chosen to receive an award from the Arts and Culture Commission.

This year, these selections were reproduced in the form of posters to be displayed in bus shelters – a one-time collaboration with the Ministry of Transport and funded by the Cultural Affairs Division.

Fifty of the more than 100 artworks submitted to “No Boundaries” and curated in part by Pasadena-based Side Street Projects, can now be seen in 50 bus shelters, where a QR code can be scanned so that more information about the piece are accessible on the viewer’s device.

Jennifer Paige, acting director of planning and community development, said the exhibit is expected to be in place until July.
