ABOUT THE ATTRACTION
The Benton Museum of Art at Pomona College opens a new chapter with its elegant and brand-new building designed by Machado Silvetti and Gensler. A sophisticated structure of cast-in-place concrete and glass accented with wood and bronze, the building is open to its surroundings and the gentle light of Southern California, featuring an outdoor courtyard with a newly commissioned sculpture by Alison Saar. The museum celebrates its rebirth with a host of provocative inaugural exhibitions that demonstrate its long-standing commitment to contemporary art, including a major retrospective of Saar and monographic exhibitions of work by Alia Ali and Helen Pashgian. Permanent collection installations feature highlights from the museum’s wide-ranging holdings and provide the opportunity to see many objects never previously exhibited. Check the museum’s website (www.pomona.edu/museum or www.pomona.edu/benton) for latest information regarding the museum’s opening, anticipated in early 2021.
