Pasadena’s Public Art Program has collaborated with Side Street Projects and Pasadena’s Complete Streets Coalition to develop podcasts with the artists featured in Phase III of the Rotating Public Art Exhibition Program. This project was developed as part of the city’s participation and sponsorship of Bike Month. Given the Complete Streets Coalition’s suspension of group tours for the time being, the entities teamed up to create new programming that may be experienced broadly and safely via technology.
The podcasts are integrated into a tour platform that includes a suggested bike route. The tour accompanies podcasts intended as a program to engage listeners while safely visiting the sites. Listeners can tune in to the artists via a preferred transit method, or even at home, to hear about artwork in the Rotating Public Art Exhibition Program while viewing the accompanying images.
