March 18, 2020 – Out of concern for visitors and staff, the Board of the Claremont Museum of Art has made the decision to close the museum through April 30, 2020. Though we had hoped to keep the museum open so that our visitors could look to art for inspiration and solace in these uncertain times, we believe that closure is the best way for us to support public health officials in their efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19.
The current exhibition, Vanguard: Origins of Tierra del Sol Arts in Claremont featuring Helen Rae, is closing sooner than scheduled and the upcoming StART It Up student exhibition will not take place this year.
The exhibition Furious Garden, with new works by Karen Kitchel, Deena Capparelli and Cj Jilek, was scheduled to open on May 2. These plans will be reevaluated as public health guidelines unfold and we will notify you when a new schedule is established.
We look forward to the day that the museum reopens. In the meantime, CMA is posting videos and art activity resources on social media.
