CLAREMONT MODERN: Design Blends with Art in New Public Spaces 1955–1965


Our final exhibition showed how Modern design flourished in local non-residential buildings from 1955–1965.

Many public buildings designed by Millard Sheets incorporated the work of Claremont artists and craftsmen. The Congregational Church, Garrison Theater and Pomona First Federal Bank all feature artwork by local artists such as Jean and Arthur Ames, Sue Hertel, John Svenson and Martha Underwood. Harvey Mudd College and the School of Theology were both designed by Edward Durrell Stone and the stunning chapel is furnished with the work of Sam Maloof.
