ARCHITECTURE | ART + CULTURE | ENVIRONMENT



Dear lovers of all things Claremont!

This month is jammed packed with programs and events that will engage and delight!  As Karl Benjamin told me when I interviewed him a number of years ago, "Claremont was at the epicenter of the art scene in Los Angeles during the 1950s and 60s".  The impact is still being felt today and there are several events this month that reflect how the Claremont influence is still alive and well!  Please join us in celebrating our special community!

Best regards,
