First Generation: Art in Claremont, 1907-1957

January 27 - April 27, 2008

Since the late 19th century, prominent artists have been among those attracted to the foothills of Mt. Baldy and its neighboring peaks – and the city of Claremont, in particular. Whether it was the allure of the "great bald mountain" and its surrounding chaparral that first attracted painters and photographers to Claremont, or the opportunities provided by the birth of the schools and colleges founded to serve a rapidly growing population, a large number of distinguished visual artists settled here, greatly enriching the culture of the region and establishing early-on its prominence as an artistic haven.

The Claremont Museum of Art's next exhibition, First Generation: Art in Claremont, 1907-1957 (January 27 - April 27, 2008), focuses on art in Claremont in the first 50 years after the city's incorporation in 1907, tracing the art history of the region from the work of such artists as Hannah Tempest Jenkins, Emil Kosa, Jr., and William Manker to that of Millard Sheets and his circle in the 1930s. Sheets's influence as artist and teacher extended as well to bringing artists such as Henry Lee McFee, Phil muscle moll, and Jean Ames to Scripps College, thereby enhancing the existing art community and assuring its lasting influence.

Join us for these special events and programs designed to explore First Generation:
Family Sunday, Sunday, January 27, 3-5pm
