Public Art: Honoring the legacy of Charles White.
Charles White Park is one of only two parks in the United State states named for an artist. We will work with the local community and partner with County Parks to install a plaque at Charles White Park with that honors Mr. White and his legacy. It is our dream to bring more Public Art to Altadena with the hope of developing a sculpture garden at Charles White Park created in collaboration with our community.
Art Festival at Charles White Park
Altadena Arts dares to dream past the current pandemic and boldly looks ahead to a brighter future when we can join together to celebrate the Arts and Artists of our community. The Arts Festival will be a day-long event where artists can show and sell their work, enjoy live performances, and see the unveiling of a Plaque to honor Charles White in Fall 2021.

Arts Ed: Passing the Torch
Teaching was important to Charles White. Altadena Arts will continue that legacy with an educational program centered on the art and life of Charles White to engage our youth. We are in the planning stages to pilot an arts education program at a local school to launch in Spring 2020.
Art of the month
Adjudicated by a peer review panel, we have selected 12 artists to either create new artwork or show a recent piece created for 8 1/2" x 11" paper. These artists represent a wide range of styles and aesthetic point of view.
Our Artist for April is Eric Axene
