Museum offers free admission to Claremont residents

(November 23, 2009) – Bring your friends and family to the The Packing House this holiday weekend for a uniquely Claremont experience. 220 people visited the Claremont Museum of Art over the past two weekends since the museum extended free admission to all Claremont residents.

The exhibition An Enduring Legacy: New Acquisitions to the Permanent Collection is currently on view. This exhibition features works by many nationally recognized Claremont area artists. It is presented with the support of Gould Asset Management.

Also on view is Ten Pound Ape: Your Mother was Beautiful Once, Part Vier, an interactive installation funded by a grant from the James Irvine Foundation.

The City of Claremont has provided a grant to enable the Museum to remain in operation through the end of the year. The Claremont Museum of Art is considered an important asset to the City and a focal point of The Packing House venue.

Museum hours are Friday-Sunday 11:00 am to 5:00 pm. All Claremont residents and all children under the age of 18 are admitted free through the end of this year.
