Get Your Project Started!
At the end of the nineteenth century, creative artisans were drawn to the austere beauty of the Arroyo Seco—the seasonally dry riverbed that stretches from Los Angeles to Pasadena. Four generations of artists, writers, printers, educators, collectors, and taste-makers influenced what has come to be known as Arroyo Culture. While some took aesthetic cues from the East Coast and abroad, their activities possessed a native self-consciousness. Their output placed an early value on multiculturalism, historical preservation, gender equality, and sensitivity towards the natural setting in which they lived and worked, well before the Parkway was built and concrete tamed winter flood waters. This exhibition aims to highlight contributions in the areas of writing, publishing, printing, bookbinding, book collecting, and bookselling on the Arroyo Seco, in addition to placing a special focus on the role that Occidental College played in this vital history.
The exhibition draws from the rich holdings of Occidental College Library’s Special Collections, with additional material on loan from the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library, UCLA Library Special Collections, and copies of original photographs from the Braun Research Library, Autry National Center and the Ella Strong Denison Library, Scripps College.

How do we create your glass project?
That's a question we get often, so we've created a video series to help guide you through the process. Every couple of weeks we'll give you a new video so you can watch a different part of the process. From beginning to end, we'll show you each step.
