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.
