One of the most popular installations was "Unsustainable Beast", two life-size, up-cycled oxen by artist Cynthia Minet, who received a mini grant from City of Pasadena Cultural Affairs Division to bring this recycled creature to our show! Also on display were creative works from Room 13’s student driven studios, an exhibit of African American prints, face masks made by students of Day One's SKILLZ Prevention Summer School, luminous flowers by Day One Arts and Media Intern Adam Smith, a tiger cub ice sculpture by Tatiana Viquez (Troubled Ice), as well as installations by Amy Wolkins, Zachary Schultz, Dianne Patrizzi, Liane Shih, and Pasadena's Aztec dancer group.
Last but not least, attendees also had the opportunity to sample fresh and healthy fruit-infused waters and fresh-fruit jello, as well as enter the secretly healthy "Lighted Labyrinth." Set up using LED candle lights on a transformed beach volleyball court, the labyrinth was a hit with young and old, who enjoyed trying to find their way out of its circuitous paths, while also getting an extra dose of FUN physical activity!
