I have nosed around in Claremont for years while I worked and lived close by. The Pomona College has a good collection of art that you might miss otherwise. Come and see for yourself. Smaller, more intimate. The college cafeteria also has murals.

They have quite a few holdings and some of the shows include students. It's always fun to see what they're up to.

Incredible curated national shows (Pacific Daylight), as well as cutting edge student exhibitions. Being a small college museum the hours are limited. Check before going.
