Former Pomona Professor Explains How Pomona Led Him to the Museum of Modern Art

Jarrett Earnest taught at Pomona and ran the College's gallery in the 1950s and, as he explains in an interview in The Brooklyn Rail, Pomona was part of the reason he ended up at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. As chief curator of painting and sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art from 1958 to 1965, he was an integral figure in modern art, overseeing the first major exhibitions of Rothko, Rodin and Art Nouveau.
