The Los Angeles area has much to offer students of the Claremont Colleges who are interested in art.  In order to take advantage of some of these many art-viewing opportunities, Professors Frances Pohl and George Gorse organized a visit to “The Great Wall of Los Angeles” by Judith Baca, a 1/2 mile-long mural in the Tujunga drainage channel in North Hollywood, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on Sunday, March 3, for students in Art History 51C, 184, and 186E.  Such trips are a regular part of the art history courses offered by Pomona’s Department of Art and Art History.
