Affectionately known to locals as “the Arroyo”, the Arroyo Seco in Pasadena is a protected parkland with 22 miles of trails and recreation opportunities. The works in this exhibition explore the habitat which sustains the rich biodiversity found within this stunning canyon.

The concept for The Diverse Environments of the Arroyo Seco developed from the close personal and artistic relationship that CAC President Emeritus Peter Adams has had with this scenic region. A long-time resident of Pasadena, Adams has continually sought inspiration for his work from the Arroyo’s unmatched natural beauty. Given his detailed knowledge of this beloved urban forest, the Pasadena Museum of History chose to use a selection of Adams’ paintings to introduce signature landmarks of the Arroyo to visitors of the exhibition.

Artwork is available for purchase. If you have interest in acquiring a work, please submit a purchase inquiry.  In addition, we suggest consulting our Terms of Sale.
