Claremont Past and Claremont Present have convened t0 point toward Claremont Future as the Claremont Museum of Art reopened yesterday after a seven-year hiatus as a “museum without walls”. The new walls, courtesy of the historic train depot, now contain two exhibition rooms with plans to open two more rooms in the future.
The current exhibit, (re)Generation: Six Decades of Claremont Artists, features pieces from the permanent collection, from a Sam Maloof rocking chair to a Harrison Macintosh vase to a Karl Benjamin painting.
The museum is free to all throughout December with weekend hours of noon-4 on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays.
