We are delighted to welcome our members and friends safely back to the Claremont Depot lawn for our Fall Gala on September 18. Be assured that we are doing everything to ensure your well-being so you can comfortably enjoy the wine and hors d’oeuvres reception, and the dinner catered by Spaggi’s at distanced tables. The evening will include bidding on unique live auction items, as well as the paddle auction that will benefit Project ARTstART.

This year’s theme, “Imagine,” celebrates the completion of our two new galleries, as we imagine more walls, for more art, more programs and more people. The evening festivities will highlight the dedication of the Museum’s Atrium in honor of Sandy Baldonado, in recognition of her leadership, vision and commitment to CMA and the entire Claremont community.

Our fall exhibition, Furious Garden will be open for viewing, as will the renovated gallery spaces. And our popular Wine Pull will be back on the plaza. Special thanks to Platinum Sponsor Patricia A. Lobello, Lobello Lamb Lewis & Riley LLP, and Silver Sponsors Susan A. Allen and Rae Rottman.

Individual tickets to the Gala are $150, $75 of which is tax-deductible. We respectfully request that all guests be vaccinated or have had a recent negative COVID test.
