If you like space and science, you may want to head toward the Pasadena Museum of History this coming Saturday and make your own space vehicle!
While you’re there, delve into the worlds of science fiction in their multifaceted new exhibition Dreaming the Universe: The Intersection of Science, Fiction, & Southern California and explore how the literary genre interacted with the advances of science, and explore the shifts in American society during five pivotal decades, the 1930s to the 1980s.
Space vehicles and punch
This Saturday, March 3rd, you can help launch PMH’s exhibit in style on their Free Opening Day, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm. Science fiction-inspired attire is encouraged; Art 2 Go will help kids (of all ages!) make their own space vehicles in the crafts workshop; and our Cosmic Cantina will be pouring Pangalactic Punch!
In addition to Opening Day, a number of special free admission days will take place, including ArtNight Pasadena (March 9); Star Wars Day (May 4); Museums of the Arroyo Day (May 20); Octavia Butler’s Birthday (June 22); Family Free Day (July 22); and Ray Bradbury’s Birthday (August 22).
There will also be ticketed evening lectures that will explore the lifestyles and literary impact of Octavia Butler on March 29, and Ray Bradbury on April 19, and go behind the scenes with the groundbreaking television series Space Patrol on April 17, among other topics related to the exhibition.
