The Student Life writes about John Cage, Charles Gaines, and Marilyn Bridges

The Pomona College Museum of Art is currently showing three single-artist exhibitions: “John Cage: Zen Ox-Herding Pictures,” “In the Shadow of Numbers: Charles Gaines Selected Works from 1975-2012” and “Marking/Remarking: Aerial Photographs by Marilyn Bridges,” which opened to the public on the first day of classes. An opening reception was held on Sept. 15.

Housed in the main gallery of the museum, the John Cage exhibition is one of many events at Pomona College to honor the 100th anniversary of Pomona’s most renowned drop-out. Often remembered for his musical experimentations such as "4’33”" (the infamous “silent” piece), this exhibition provides a vantage point into another aspect of Cage’s many-faceted personality.
