Though its opening has been scuttled due to coronavirus restrictions, there is still much happening at Pomona College’s brand new Benton Museum.
The $44 million facility, which was set to open this fall, is installing its inaugural season of exhibitions and launched its new website earlier this month.
“We hope that the array of exhibition and collection images—both past and present—will inspire you, challenge you, and remind you how we are continuing to work with the students, staff, and faculty in our academic community to foster meaningful conversations about art and the transformative power it can have,” read a Benton press release from director Victoria Sancho Lobis.
The new website is https://www.pomona.edu/museum.
A year in development, the project lead for the website redesign was Communication and Engagement Manager Justine Bae Bias. Senior curator Rebecca McGrew and Nathan Stazewski, director of communications technology and strategy in the Pomona College Office of Communications, were also instrumental.
