This is an open community call to populate the walls of the Clara & Allen Gresham Art Gallery of San Bernardino Valley College with the words and images of what life looks and feels like across San Bernardino County. This could be photographs of the view from your window or a portrait of your family. This could take form as a short poem or a collage of postcards from your local gift shop. These walls are going to represent the vivid, textured layers of our lives that we can never see in one pass on a map.
Where do you find yourself, in whose company, in what layers of culture, history, religion, and environment? What are the ways you share that experience with those around you?
A map only contains the layers of information we decide to include and the lens we choose to put on. When you look at a map of San Bernardino County, it is a vast space containing over 20,000 square miles, where 75% of the population lives on just 2.5% of the land. But this data doesn’t convey the rich experiences each of you have with the land you love, steward and share with those closest to you.
We are creating a gallery sized portrait of those selves and those places that populate the largest county in the lower 48. Those 24 cities, 27 census designated places, 77 unincorporated communities, 5 reservations, and 3 ghost towns.

Check the attic, the closet and the garage for gently-used wall art pieces and donate them to the Attic Art Sale to help raise funds for art education in Redlands. Sponsored by the Redlands Festival of Arts (RFA) and the Redlands Art Association (RAA), the Attic Art Sale is a two-day art event with over 300 pieces of art that might typically be purchased in a gallery, but at bargain prices that could yield some lost treasures.
The sale opens Friday, March 1, with a $25 per person cocktail party preview sale, 5:30 to 8:00 pm, at The Museum of Redlands (MOR), 700 Brookside Ave. The collection opens to the public on Saturday, March 2, from 8 am to 3 pm.
Event organizers are seeking donations of wall art, which can be dropped off until Thursday, February 28 at the offices of Lois Lauer Century 21 Realty, 1998 Orange Tree Lane, from 9 am to 5 pm, Monday thru Friday, and 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday and Sunday.
Art donors with questions should call Shirley Harry: 909-214-7179 or email her: . For general information or to purchase preview sale tickets, call the RAA at (909) 792-8435.
Shirley Harry, Event Chair, said, “This is a wonderful opportunity to edit your wall art collection and share art that you’ve enjoyed, but no longer have a place to display. Best of all, you’ll be helping us raise badly needed funds for arts education programs.”
People often call the RAA and the RFA to ask what they can do with inherited artwork or pieces that they’ve purchased and no longer want. Unfortunately, Harry says that it’s harder to sell art on the secondary market than one might think.
This fun event offers art lovers an opportunity to donate their artwork to a local charitable organization for a potential tax deduction. Art donors will fill out a donation form listing the artwork and its value, but will need to consult a tax professional to comply with IRS rules.
Claremont McKenna College's commitment to supporting our local Inland Empire non-profits expands this year through a new certificate program. This program will be facilitated by the Kravis Lab for Social Impact, a new office on campus. Some of you may know us from when we were under the Kravis Leadership Institute umbrella. We are excited to launch this program as one of our inaugural Kravis Lab community offerings.
Often when non-profits provide products and services, they define their impact by the execution of services, how many people they have reached, how many products used or other quantifiable evidence of service delivered. But is that impact? Kravis Lab defines impact as the effect or influence of one person, thing, or action, on another. This program asks non-profits to see beyond the number of people they have reached, and explore and identify the existing ways in which they are transforming the lives of those people and/or their communities because of their interventions.
This spring we are hosting a 4-workshop series to help non-profits implement tools to track their impact: Tools for Research & Evaluation Design – Making the Case for Funding. These series of workshops will support local non-profit and community-based organizations to design and implement a research and evaluation strategy that evidences the impact of their missions. Every month NPO/CBOs will learn a variety of tools for impact measurement, how to frame the story of their impact, and how to use it for influence, fundraising, recruitment and support. The final workshop will feature a funding panel who will help participants understand their funding evaluation criteria and guide them through developing a succinct framing of their impact strategy.
- Workshop #1: Feb 9 - Understanding Research and Evaluation Design – What Approaches are Right for Your Mission?
- Workshop #2: Mar 9 - How to Deploy the Model for Social Change – Designing Community Based Participatory Research Plans
- Workshop #3: April 13 - How to Use Secondary Data to Inform Your Research and Evaluation Plans
- Workshop #4: Jun 5 - How to Explain Evaluation to Funders – A Funders Panel and Poster Presentation on Research and Evaluation
