Teaching with the Museum

Teaching from original works of art is central to the mission at the Pomona College Museum of Art. Throughout the academic year the Museum offers a variety of educational programs highlighting the exhibitions and collections of the Museum and connecting our students with the arts and concerns of our time. Pomona College faculty can use the Museum, its exhibitions, and collections as a resource for teaching, a classroom, and a subject for research and writing.


The Collection Study Room (CSR), located in the Museum, is available for classes to work with the Museum’s extensive collections of prints and photographs, and to view paintings. The Native American Collection Study Center (NASC) is located on the lower level of Bridges Auditorium (Big Bridges). Both spaces have smart classroom technology that allows faculty to integrate their own visual lecture material with the collection.

A database of artworks in the Museum’s collection is available at: embarkweb1.campus.pomona.edu.
