The Chaffey College Art Committee is launching the Campaign for CUCAMONGA to bring an exciting permanent public sculpture to the campus. In the 2008 Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art exhibition, Inlandia and the 2008 Temporary Art Park organized by the Art Committee, you may recall seeing Inland Empire-based artist Amy Maloofʼs sculpture Props. The positive response to this art installation was incredible, and a movement began for a permanent installation – to make the artwork a part of Chaffey College for years to come.
Maloof's life-size homage to the Hollywood sign gives a nod and a wink to the world of make-believe to our West and screams, "the Inland Empire and Chaffey College are here and we're proud!" It serves as a symbol of our community, our unity and our common goals at Chaffey College and in the I.E.
Support the Campaign for CUCAMONGA and help us add this exciting piece of public art to the Chaffey College Art Collection.
The arts are an investment in our shared heritage, serving the public good by nurturing human creativity, supporting community spirit, and fostering appreciation of the excellence and diversity of our community’s artistic accomplishments. Your gift truly makes a difference in helping us achieve our goals to support the work of local artists, enrich the campus environment, and promote community education in the arts. If you have ever considered making a donation in support of public art on campus, now is the time! (Letter from the Chair of the Art Committee)
The Associated Students of Chaffey College (ASCC) of 2008-2009 gave $8000 toward the commissioning of this artwork as part of their class gift. The goal of the Campaign for CUCAMONGA is to raise the remaining $10,000. Please help us reach the goal of $10 from 1000 donors.
Donations to the Campaign for CUCAMONGA can be sent to the Art Committee through the Chaffey College Foundation and are tax deductible.
Thank you for supporting the Campaign for CUCAMONGA!
Chair, Chaffey College Art Committee
