On March 10th, 2012, Paramount Traditional Artists Guild (who has been partnered with the Downey Art League) produced their annual Panorama Traditional Arts Show at Progress Park in Paramount. Here are some quick snapshots of our visit to the event. The work was impressive, and showed a wide variety of styles, despite the limitation of “traditional,” which excludes abstract art or photography. They also included a contest for student work from the Paramount school district.
Also in the pictures, Paramount has some interesting works of public art at the park, and yes, they do have painted utility boxes.
