We won't be offering a run down of the best Rose Bowl floats. However, we are going to celebrate a little Pasadena art history with a look at the Kenny Scharf Garage, a site specific mural installation at the Pasadena Museum of California Art. Painted in 2004 to complement the museum's first tri-level exhibition, Kenny Scharf: California Grown, the murals transform a non-descript parking space into a magical area known as the Kosmic Kavern.

Think of it as scene setting for RETNA's full museum take over this past year.
