CMA is a completely volunteer driven non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) charitable organization that currently has no full or part time employees. The Museum contracts services with independent contractors to plan and implement its art education and exhibition programming. Museum oversight and events are crewed by a team of top-notch, dedicated volunteers. CMA’s exhibitions and programs are funded and made possible by donors, foundations, corporate sponsors, civic organizations, our Board of Directors and members.
In December 2015, the Claremont Museum of Art entered into a lease agreement with the City of Claremont for the adaptive reuse of the Claremont Depot as a small art museum. Thanks to generous and enthusiastic community support, the museum raised over $150,000 and completed Phase I of the renovation. The museum opened its new gallery space at the Depot on November 20, 2016. Click here to see the complete list of Depot Renovation Fund Donors. (link to PDF of CMA Depot supporters)
