Free Admission Sunday at USC Pacific Asia Museum - see INFO below. Established in 1971, the museum is one of few U.S. institutions dedicated to the arts and culture of Asia and the Pacific Islands, serving the city of Los Angeles and the Greater Southern California region. The museums mission is to further intercultural understanding through the arts of Asia and the Pacific Islands. The museums historic building has served as a center for art, culture and learning in Pasadena since its construction in 1924 by pioneering collector and entrepreneur Grace Nicholson (1877-1948) as her residence, galleries, and Treasure Houseemporium. Ms. Nicholsons championing of Asian art early in the century set the tone for much of the Pasadena communitys arts-related activities during the ensuing decades. The building also served as the site of the Pasadena Art Museum, which was renowned for its groundbreaking exhibitions of contemporary art. Pacific Asia Museum combined the spirits of both its predecessors in its focus on the classic and contemporary arts of Asia and the Pacific Islands. In 2013, University of Southern California partnered with the museum to form USC Pacific Asia Museum. The affiliation broadened the community that benefits from the museums role as a vital resource for education and cultural heritage, and expanded the audience interested in a dialogue about art, history and culture.
