Roto Pasadena (2016)
Animated projections on Pasadena's City Hall, Police Station, and Central Library. Created by artists Lisa Mann and Yo-Yo Lin, ROTO PASADENA is a community animation project funded through the National Endowment of the Arts "Our Town" Grant, produced by City of Pasadena Cultural Affairs and Side Street Projects.
The goal is to open a dialogue between Pasadena officials and decision-makers and the people they serve, to bridge the divide between generations, cultures, and races.

ROTO PASADENA is a community art project created by Pasadena artists Lisa Mann and Yo-Yo Lin. They have collaborated with two Northwest Pasadena youth groups -- La Pintoresca Teen Education Center and Pasadena YouthBuild-- to create a video poem from a teen perspective of living in Pasadena and to conduct and film interviews with the Pasadena Police department’s top brass and city council members.
