Looking for info on April 2010 ModCom mtg. in Claremont

There was a ModCom meeting at the OBJCT Gallery in Claremont in April 2010 with guest speaker, sculptor John Svenson. A great list of modern sites in Claremont worth checking out was put together for this occasion. Does anyone still have the list? Thanks in advance!

There is no longer a 118 E. Huntington Dr. in Arcadia. This building is 128 E. Huntington (which, from the look of it, could've been a bank...I couldn't see inside), and to the right is 102, a gas station.
