Today, I met up with Mary Jo at Marston's in Pasadena for brunch. This place is legendary and has been there forever. I've been wanting to eat here for decades. Our brunch at Marston's was sinful and delicious!
Not healthy, but oh so delicious!

After brunch we took a short ride to the Pasadena Museum of California Art. The main show (thru 11/15/15) is "Someday is Now: The Art of Corita Kent."  Sister Mary Corita Kent was a nun and art teacher at Immaculate Heart College in Los Angeles. She was very influenced by the pop art movement of the 1960s. This exhibition encompasses her work of three decades. She used pop culture images and graphics along with inspirational and philosophical messages in her vibrant silk screen prints.
Most of these prints have tiny words written into the graphic designs. There were interesting series of prints too.

I really love the vibrancy and immediate look of Corita Kent's work.  It was a beautiful and timeless exhibition!

Museum gift shops are the best. They have the cutest items for sale, like this fabric bunny!

The parking lot at the Pasadena Museum of California Art is festooned with murals by artist, Kenny Scharf.  We had fun photographing the crazy images and taking a few selfies!

Hey! What's Wilma Flintstone doing in Jane Jetson's flying saucer car?

I love your photos of the exhibit! I'll have to make an effort to get up there from Irvine.
