Pitzer Art Galleries exists to provide visually arresting and memorable exhibitions for diverse audiences, students, and artists who promote the value and understanding of contemporary art within a local, national, and international context. The galleries are comprised of two sites, the Nichols Gallery—committed to solo and group exhibitions by national and international artists, both emerging and established—and the Lenzner Family Art Gallery, a space for risk and experimentation dedicated to emerging artists working in all media. Through curatorial creativity and visionary programming, Pitzer Art Galleries seeks to provide context, support, and a critical framework for artists and curators working today, and by doing so ignite meaningful dialogue that fascinates, inspires, and invigorates.
Pitzer College is a nationally top-ranked undergraduate college of the liberal arts and sciences. A member of the Claremont Colleges, Pitzer offers a distinctive approach to a liberal education by linking intellectual inquiry with interdisciplinary studies, cultural immersion, social responsibility, and community involvement.
