More walls, for more art, more programs and more people
As CLMA continues to thrive in the historic Claremont Depot, the Museum has transformed the remaining spaces into galleries and a community room. The adaptive reuse of this historic building has been a very successful public/private partnership with the City of Claremont, Metro, and the generous support of members and friends.
With high ceilings and expansive wall and floor space, the new galleries will more than double our exhibition and educational opportunities and allow us to showcase a mix of art, sculpture, and media to inspire art lovers of all ages. The stunning addition of a glassed-in Community Room will reshape the West Portico into a venue for smaller programs, art classes, and special events.
The adaptive reuse of this historic building has been a very successful public/private partnership with the City of Claremont, Metro, and the generous support of CLMA members and friends throughout the local area. The CLMA Board of Directors is immensely grateful to the city of Claremont for its support and for undertaking the mandated seismic and accessibility work on the eastern end of the Depot with funding approved by Metro with the Museum as the tenant. The Claremont Depot is part of Metrolink’s rail network, and it will be part of Metro’s Foothill Gold Line system in the near future. Further, Metro has made it a priority to support art in public spaces at each of its rail stops, which is why the Metro Board found it appropriate for Prop C funds to be utilized at the Claremont stop to support retrofitting and safety.
Our expanded museum will be a catalyst to spur creative thinking, civic engagement, and innovative programming for a bright and inclusive future. To learn more about the Imagine campaign fundraising, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
