Steve Roden

December 15, 2010

Ah, it’s been a while. I’ve been super busy with my new scouting job, but now that fall baseball has concluded, things are slowing down. I’m finally getting a moment to catch up on emails and spend a little time on the Art of Catching stuff.

So I’m sure you’d like me to comment on something baseball related but…not now. (If you really need a fix, check out the latest tip I put out a couple days ago.) I’m going to go off the board and report about a fantastic art show I saw the other day. Steve Roden’s “in be tween” at the armory center for the arts in Pasadena. One thing that’s really nice about this new job I have is that I’m all over L.A. I love Los Angeles for a lot of reasons, but one of the biggest is because it’s full of art. And I love art.

I’ve mentioned it in a few past blogs, but I see a correlation between good art and athletics. The flow, the risk, the intuition, the creativity, the “in-the-momentness” of both acts are very similar to me. Enter Steve Roden. I’m no expert in the field, but I know what I like and his stuff felt honest and right. I’d highly recommend his show to anyone interested and in the L.A area. He also maintains an interesting blog.

Roden’s art runs the gamut…painting, sculpture, sound, movies, drawing, collage, etc. Here are a few pictures of his stuff that I snapped at the show…enjoy.
