Claremont Lewis Museum of Art Fall Gala
The Claremont Lewis Museum of Art Fall Gala will celebrate the power of art in our lives and its
ability to bring a community together on Saturday, September 24.
The festivities will begin at 5:30 pm with a reception on the Depot Plaza to toast the many
generous donors who helped complete the renovation of the final two rooms in the Claremont
Depot, transforming them into spacious galleries. The Museum will be open to view the current
exhibition Claremont Collects: Art, Creativity, Community and dinner will be served on the
Depot lawn by Chef Henry of Spaggi’s. Special thanks to Gala Platinum Sponsor, Patricia A.
Lobello, Lobello Lamb Lewis & Riley LLP; Gold Sponsor, Claremont Lincoln University; and Silver
Sponsor, Ahlene Welsh.
Highlights of the evening will include the dedication of Gallery One to Marguerite McIntosh, the
founding president of the Museum, and a tribute to Randall Lewis and his family for their
stunning and strategic gift to establish an endowment fund to secure the future of the
Claremont Lewis Museum of Art. The event will include bidding on unique live auction items, as
well as a paddle auction to benefit Project ARTstART celebrating its twelfth year in the
Claremont Unified School District.
The community is invited to participate in the Gala celebration and the Online Auction, with 50
works by Claremont’s legacy artists and current local artists. The Online Auction will go live at
