Free Stuff Alert: If you live in the area, Friday is Pasadena Art Night, billed as "an evening of free arts and culture." From 6-10pm, area museums open their doors to the public, and a free shuttle will transport you between any of the 14 participating cultural institutions.Choices include a new exhibit of Matisse illustrations at the Norton Simon, a celebration of the music of John Coltrane with LA's finest saxophonists at the Paseo Colorado, SHIKI: Four Seasons of Art at the Shumei Arts Council which celebrates the spirit of nature with taiko drums, koto strings, the art of tea and calligraphy, and an Art Night After Party with food and drink specials from 10pm to 1am at the Paseo Colorado, to name just a few. So come on out and design your own evening of art and music. The event kicks off the Pasadena Arts Weekend.
