Support the "CURATORS 10" exhibitions, and pave the way for future exhibitions, artists and curators.

Support the arts and "CURATORS 10" of the Mt. San Antonio College Art Gallery Design/Operations and Art Profession Certificate Program.  

We are in the final preparation stages for a continuous 3-week run of 10 different, compelling and gorgeous shows!! There are 10 different curators, which means 10 very unique shows; from abstraction to intervention, from pop-surrealism to scenic photography and more....something for anyone.

The gallery boasts an impressive 2,000+ square feet nestled in the heart of the art department at Mt. SAC, which has hosted an impressive 60+ year history of exhibitions that have included greater Los Angeles luminaries such as John Baldessari, Llyn Foulkes, Paul Soldner, Charles Eames, Salomon Huerta, Tony Delap and more.

Your generous and secure donation (of any amount you see listed to the right) will help with costs to install the exciting CURATORS 10 exhibitions, and pave the way for future exhibitions, artists and curators.

Scroll down for a list of all 10 shows in order of each week. We hope to see you!
