The Pasadena Museum of History's latest exhibit, "Art in the Street: 25 Years of the Pasadena Chalk Festival," traces the evolution of one of the city's most popular annual attractions. Founded in 1993 by Pasadena nonprofit arts organization Light Bringer Project, and named the largest street-painting festival in the world in 2010 by Guinness World Records, each year the event brings together 600 artists from around the country who create concrete murals that draw in more than 100,000 visitors over two days in the summer. The retrospective features photographs, video and artists' biographies, as well as artist demonstrations and interactive events throughout the display's run.
