Armory Center for the Arts

Armory Center for the Arts

Nonprofit and community-based, Armory Center for the Arts is a national leader for contemporary art exhibitions and community arts education. The Armory believes that an understanding and appreciation of the arts is essential for a well-rounded human experience and a healthy community. Armory exhibitions inspire dialogue around visual culture and contemporary life, contribute to global discourses in contemporary art, and introduce contemporary visual art to Pasadena, Southern California, and beyond. At the core of the Armory's mission is a deep commitment to social justice through arts education. Every day, Armory Teaching artists transform lives and communities through the power of art. This includes year-round studio art classes for all ages at the center's Old Pasadena campus, plus hundreds of no-cost art classes for at-risk populations at schools, parks, libraries, community centers, and juvenile detention centers, both in Pasadena and throughout Southern California.
