“It Happened at Pomona: Art at the Edge of Los Angeles 1969-1973” is a three-part exhibit and performance art showcase that brings together 29 artists to utilize all of the galleries of the Pomona College Museum of Art for an entire academic year in an attempt to highlight the art movement of the late ’60s and early ’70s. A series of radical art projects had taken place at the museum from 1969 to 1973 bringing about some of the most influential artists in Los Angeles today. These artists and alumnus of Pomona College return to chronicle the activities of artists, scholars, students and faculty during the postwar period forming not only an exhibit but also a community event. Part 1 of the showcase opens on Tuesday and will feature Hal Glicksman former curator/director of the museum. If you love the Pomona—and Claremont—art scene this is one event you want to keep checking in on.

“It Happened at Pomona” at Pomona College Museum of Art, 333 N. College Ave., Claremont, (909) 621-8283; www.pomona.edu/museum. Thru Jan. 21.
