Art Walk: Beautiful Pomona

Beautiful PomonaEvery August, many of the galleries in Downtown Pomona use this time to showcase Pomona themed shows. As our team discussed the many aspects of Pomona we could highlight, we focused in on a Downtown treasure…the “Pomona Envisions the Future” mural located in Thomas Plaza.

Local pride continues in a big way over at the LOFT’s “Beautiful Pomona: Ode to a Mural,” a group show curated by Joshua and Chara Swodeck featuring riffs on the Thomas Plaza mural “Pomona Envisions the Future,” a stunning project put together by Cheryl Bookout and Kevin Stewart-MaGee back in 2002 that was executed by Judy Chicago and Donald Woodman with contributions by Pomona artists Chris Toovey, Athena Hahn, Joy McCallister and over 75 others. It’s Pomona’s most impressive and famous artistic feature to date, so it’ll be fascinating to see what artists Erns Valdez, Christian Ornelas, Dan Romero, Richard Nunez, Eric Newbern, Chara Swodeck, Johnnie Dominquez, Nathan Neighbor, and Shelly Bruce come up with.

Karl Benjamin Mural

Our daughter Brooklyn (7), helping artist David Flores with some touch up painting

Visitors ask us all the time about the mural across the street from the Loft. I spot kids walking by it, snapping pictures with their phone. Most of them do not know the significance of the mural or Karl Benjamin was.

The mural, depicting famed artist Karl Benjamin (who recently passed away), was a brainchild of Andi Campognone and Alex Couwenberg, who brought together artist David Flores and the Pomona Arts Commission to create something remarkable for our neighborhood.

Enjoy the short documentary by Hollywood independent filmmaker and photographer Eric Minh Swenson as he tells the story.
