More art institutions suffer in the wake of the recession, even those that have just gotten off to a good start. Culture Monster reports:
Two and a half years after bursting into life in a historic, former fruit packing plant, the Claremont Museum of Art is on death’s door, the victim of a financial shortfall. Three expected donations suddenly failed to materialize, leaving the institution without enough money to support itself, said board president Frank Chabre. The museum’s five full-time employees, including director William Moreno, have been laid off and the shop closed.
