Exhibit  Designed by Janine Christiano

Presented by The Armory Center for the Arts


Peer into the MIND BEHIND THE MADWOMAN with an exhibit presented by the Armory Center for the Arts, designed by Janine Christiano, in celebration of Sandra Tsing Loh and The Pasadena Playhouse’s debut of her play, THE MADWOMAN IN THE VOLVO. The exhibit is housed in the Georgia T. McClay Friendship Center located off our Courtyard. In this exhibit, learn more about the journey of Sandra and her play, get a feel for Burning Man, and see how society’s views on “the change” have evolved through the ages. When you stop by the Friendship Center, feel free to share your memories of personal transformation, and leave us your feedback in our journal.

The Pasadena Playhouse is proud to partner with The Armory Center for the Arts on this exhibition. Partnerships like this is one way that helps us to ensure the highest degree of artistic excellence for our community.
