Artists and merchants gear up to welcome people of all ages to another quarterly “neighborhood-night-on-the-town” as the Chamber of Commerce hosts the Winter Arts Crawl on the evening of Saturday, February 11th featuring art exhibitions, interactive activities, open houses, food and drink specials, and sales throughout the business district.

Chamber President Laurie Wheeler says “The Winter Crawl offers a valuable opportunity for the community to come out to South Pasadena and enjoy an evening around town with family and friends, all while supporting local merchants and artists.”

Local Artist Sascha Stannard will lead a children’s art activity making Valentine’s boxes ‘to give to the ones we love’ from 3:30-6:50pm at the City Hall Courtyard. The South Pasadena Arts Council (SPARC) hosts an open house and artist meet and greet for their exhibition titled Two Views by Shauneen Bell and Gillian Gough at the Chamber of Commerce Gallery.
