Pasadena - CA — Special "Seabiscuit" themed artwork created by adults with disabilities who are enrolled in Pasadena's Adaptive Recreation Art Program will be on display from July 13 to September 7, 2013 at the Armory Center for the Arts, 145 N. Raymond Avenue.
The public is invited to attend an opening reception for the artists and their artwork to be held at the Armory Center from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., Saturday, July 13. An art booklet on the theme of "Seabiscuit" will be available for a $20.00 donation.
"Seabiscuit" is the theme selected by program participants for their artwork. The life story of Seabiscuit—one of the most famous and successful Thoroughbred racehorses in U.S. History—and his primary jockey, Red Pollard, is one laced with disabilities and injuries that both horse and rider had to overcome during their careers. Seabiscuit also frequently raced at nearby Santa Anita Racetrack in the 1930s and a bronze statue honoring "The Biscuit" – America's Racehorse — has been on display there since 1941.
Donations are tax deductible through the Pasadena Recreation and Parks Foundation. Program volunteers are always needed and most welcome.
