I was expecting a lot out of Pomona College's Art Museum, as a flagship of the "Harvard of the West". Fogg Art Museum it isn't. Ive been there several times, and the place is poorly designed, the items on exhibit are often neglible. What a waste. Why?

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.
