Summer is here!
For those of us who live in the Village of Claremont, this time of year marks the passing of another school year and the beginning of a very quiet few months. Commencement exercises at the 5Cs have come and gone and our town has lost a few young thousand residents until classes begin again in August. That means that art lectures and gallery openings have come to a halt – almost. There are a few events I’ll be telling you about, but, importantly, there are many permanent art works in Claremont that are more fixed than the student body. I’ll be posting our weekly suggestions on art experiences you can have relating to site specific work that exists here in Claremont. There is a James Turrell skyspace that is best enjoyed during summer months, I’ll be posting interviews with local Claremont artists, and there are several important mosaic murals you’ll have to wait to hear more about. There is also an art exhibition during Pitzer College’s alumni reunion weekend, this little thing coming to Los Angeles in August called Pacific Standard Time, and a photography show we’re curating. So keep checking back.
