Spotlight Gallery: Color, Colour, Kuhl-er
Steven Long

October 11 - November 29, 2015
Told at an early age that in order to fit into the real world, one needs to conform and color "inside the lines…” Steven Long used color to express his thoughts and feelings about all sorts of topics in his little world of art. Colorful as well as often humorous, Steven certainly has a different point of view and still refuses to color "inside the lines”.
Through November 29, 2015

CCMA in the News
David Allen blog

Inland Valley Daily Bulletin columnist David Allen keeps up with what's going on at CCMA. He recently wrote about the outdoor sculpture now gracing the front lawn of CCMA. The sculpture was created by Fullmer Construction superintendent Gary Rue entirely from materials leftover from construction the parking lot next door.
