Voices | in the progress gallery


Curator: Momo (Yuntong) Wu

Artisst: Neda Badiei, Stephen D. West, Pamela Alderman, Shawn Smith, Madison Lucas, Adam Buck

What if our environment could be given a voice? What would it sound like? Would nature’s voice reflect the roaring sounds of wildfires consuming the forests, or the cries of countless birds killed by wind turbines and environmental poisons? Or would we hear the ethnic minority’s tears, because of the injustices that strip away their freedom? Today, we need to take the opportunity and the responsibility to listen to the spoken and unspoken voices. Our action—or inaction—will make a lasting imprint on the world for generations to come.



Art-Talk July 17th | 7pm


Please join us for our next live Art-Talk, live or on zoom.




June 12th - July 24th 2021


Words and Images | in the east gallery


Curator: John Brantingham

Artist: Ann Brantingham, Peter Churchill, Kendall Johnson, Melissa Macias

Poets: John Brantingham, Kate Flannery, Kendall Johnson, Trevor Losh-Johnson, Francesca Terzano, Thomas Thomas, Aruni Wijesinghe

Words and Images is a conversation between some of the artists and poets of Mt. San Antonio College’s arts and creative writing programs. Poets respond to the visual pieces of several of the artists who have been professors or students in the college’s programs.

It focuses on how ekphrasis, poetry about art, can help to extend, discuss, or even challenge the vision of the artist. This exhibit questions traditional ways of presenting poetry. It does not have to be bound in a book to have meaning. The people who enjoy poetry do not have to read it in a traditional space. It can be a living part of the world, not a rarefied art form that exists only in bookstores and universities.



Ends - Jul 10th 2021


Portraits from the Collection | in the collection gallery


Curator: Gene Sasse

Artist: Imogen Cunninghan, Edward Curtis, Bruce Hall, Franz Hanfstaengl, Heinz Hardenberg, Dorothea Lange, Gina Lawson-Egan, Joanna Mersereau, Deenagh Miller, Phil Paradise, Snezana Saraswati Petrovic, Edward Weston, Judy Zhu

When you look at the portraits in the collection, do they play into or challenge your preconceived notions about the subject or a group to which they belong… child, adult, couple, family, ethnic group?

And what do any of these things tell us about the subject, or the artist?   Or ourselves?

If these portraits from the collection raise any of these questions as you view them, then the artists have accomplished their purpose.
