As a part of our year-long celebration of creativity, Montclair Place is proud to launch ART WORKS, a unique art installation series. The program, curated by John Wolf Advisory of Los Angeles, features both well-known artists and local college students. Pieces will range from mixed media to large scale murals to interactive works.
The first installation, which took four days to complete, can now be seen on the west-facing parking structure ramp. Celebrating Montclair’s spectacular mountain range backdrop, this stunning mural was created by students from Chaffey Community College in Rancho Cucamonga. These local artists Peyton Warrick, Jarmaine Pascua and Andrea Hernandez are former students of artist and professor Chris Trueman, who led the project. “There is no better way to begin this art series than with these talented student artists from our community,” says Trueman.
The students used the mural to both honor this unique setting as well as recognize the unique cultural diversity of the area. A gradient background reflects the unique palette of the Inland Empire, while a graphic representation of the mountains builds to form a single form, like the community uniting as one.
According to Wolf, “Montclair Place is a key shopping destination in the Inland Empire and we are pleased to kick off the exciting ‘Art Works’ series to reflect both the vibrant and progressive rebranding of Montclair Place and the multi-cultural fabric of the Inland Empire.”
