The fledgling Inland Empire Museum of Art (IEMA) recently announced its inaugural exhibition, opening on April 11th at the Millard Sheets Center for the Arts at the Fairplex in Pomona.
The show, Contemporary Art from California’s Inland Empire & Beyond, is the first exhibition of the museum’s entire collection, featuring over 120 artists and more than 175 works of contemporary art. Many prominent artists from the Inland Empire are represented, including Millard Sheets, Milford Zornes, Don O’Neill and others from throughout California and beyond.
Along with contemporary art from California’s Inland Empire & Beyond, IEMA will be showcasing The Young Eyes Gallery, the museum’s gallery for the “young at heart.” This space will be filled with many different kinds of art, and will bring joy to viewers of all ages. The work is more whimsical in nature, capturing the magic of creation and the inspiration of the artists. This special exhibit space will introduce art—and all it has to offer—to both young and old alike, and features work that appeals to the child in all of us.
