Then & Now: Women Artists of the Pomona Valley

By the 1940s, three Pomona Valley arts institutions were active, creating a synergistic nexus which permitted women artists’ talent and ambition to learn, live and thrive in the region. The art education available at Scripps College and the Claremont Graduate School attracted talented women from around the country. The jobs at the Millard Sheets Studio and surrounding colleges permitted some of these Scripps graduates to settle into the community.
