Pitzer College

Pasadena Art Alliance

Pitzer College Art Galleries believes in the power of art to inspire, engage, and transform. The Galleries’ exhibitions and programs facilitate inquiry into contemporary and historical issues of importance and reflect Pitzer College’s core values of social responsibility, intercultural understanding, interdisciplinary learning, and environmental sustainability. With a focus on inclusivity, it seeks to expand and deepen the understanding of the surrounding world. Through collaborations and partnerships with artists, and the Pitzer community, it facilitates meaningful engagement across multiple constituencies and disciplines.

The PAA grant will support the exhibition of and catalog for Cammie Staros: New Work which will be on view September – December 2022. For this exhibition, Staros will create a museum environment that has been abandoned and reclaimed by nature. The project expands her ongoing interest in the relics of fallen empires, and links them to contemporary political and environmental instabilities that threaten our future.
