Flying Horses and Mythical Beasts: The Magical World of Carousel Animals.

Carousel 4By Leticia Marie Sanchez

 An Ounce of Carousel animals, a Splash of Crafts, and a Dash of Croquet= a Magical Summer Cultural Cocktail!

Art is not simply a work hanging on a gallery wall. It can be a conversation, a recreation, or even a party.

CCH had the pleasure of attending the last day of Flying Horses and Mythical Beasts: The Magical World of Carousel Animals. This exhibition at the Pasadena Museum of History was curated by local conservator and collector Lourinda Bray.

On Carousel Family Day on August 28th, the museum treated guests to dazzling creatures, ice cream sundaes, and a craft room where children and their parents created colorful bejeweled carousel animals, inspired by the creatures in the exhibit.

To top it off, guests played croquet in the summer sun.

Now that’s a Cultural Cocktail (kid-tested, mother approved) worth imbibing!
