ARTStation Returns on Free Family Day at the Claremont Museum of Art on April 3

Claremont, Calif. (March 21, 2022) After a two-year pause, the popular ARTStation returns to the Claremont Museum of Art on Free Family Day, Sunday, April 3. High school students in Project ARTstART will again lead families in creating art projects related to the exhibition John Frame: Mephistopheles and the Swan Girl.

Located in the historic Claremont Depot at 200 W. First Street near the Metrolink Station, the museum will be open from noon to 4:00 p.m. with free admission and ARTStation, a place for children to experience art and engage with local culture.

On the first Sunday of every month, ARTStation features a new lesson developed to help children explore different aspects of the exhibition as well as their own imaginative capabilities.

The Claremont Museum of Art exhibition John Frame: Mephistopheles and the Swan Girl presents work by widely-known artist John Frame based on his production designs for the 2018 staging of Gounod’s Faust by The Lyric Opera of Chicago and The Portland Opera. It also includes Frame’s work on the Academy Award winning short film The Swan Girl, 2016. Both projects relate to the Faust story and have continued to exert a strong influence on Frame’s work.

In addition to detailed sculptural pieces, a new 12-minute film, The Sleeper’s Twin, is on view. The exhibition, generously sponsored by The Haskell Fund and Dr. Norman Cadman, has been extended through April 24. Learn more about the artist and his work at
