"Pomona College Museum of Art's Art After Hours features live music and art," by Wes Woods, Inland Valley Daily Bulletin

On a recent Thursday night, 19-year-old Rachel Choi of Scripps College created a miniature palm tree and snail with papier-mâché minutes before an energetic, guitar-heavy garage rock sound of Teenage Burritos was to start.

“It was pretty fun. I didn’t expect to be making stuff like this as a college student,” Choi said, with a smile during a break from making her creations.

The Pomona College Museum of Art in Claremont relaunched its Thursday night Art After Hours series on Sept. 4 for the fall semester that’s open to the public. The series features live music concerts sponsored by on-campus radio station KSPC 88.7 FM as well as workshops, lectures, panels and more in conjunctions with museum exhibitions.

The Art After Hours events are based off the museum’s exhibitions, from “the concept, the idea or the direction of what they do,” said Justine Bae, Pomona College Museum of Art museum coordinator.
