Inland Empire Weekly review of the new Claremont Packing House artspace, PermaDirty, owned and curated by Chaffey College art professor Cynde Miller.
Kicking off its inaugural group show, “This is the Dirt,” on Friday, PermaDirty offers an eclectic exhibition of work from IE residents that include installation, video performance, sculpture, painting, ceramics and illustration.
