About the Galleries

The Pitzer College Art Galleries’ mandate is Education and Advocacy through the Pitzer College core values—social responsibility, intercultural understanding, interdisciplinary learning, student engagement, and environmental sustainability. By following these precepts, Pitzer College Art Galleries engage and interrogate contemporary and historical issues of importance to expand our audiences’ understanding and contributions to our artistic, intellectual, and social culture. Through curatorial creativity and innovative programming, the Galleries seek to provide context, support, and a critical framework for artists and curators working today and, by doing so, inspire meaningful dialogue that fascinates, excites, and invigorates.

Parking at the Claremont Colleges is regulated by Campus Safety. All vehicles parking in visitor spaces on campus lots on weekdays must display a temporary parking permit, which can be obtained from Campus Safety at no cost. If you are attending our opening reception or a symposium on the weekend, a permit is not required to park in visitor spaces.

Street parking on Claremont Boulevard does not require a permit and is less than a five minute walk from the Lenzner Family Art Gallery.
