New York Times Reviews "Performance at Pomona"
Campus Events
The New York Times offers a favorable review of Performance at Pomona, our entry in the Pacific Standard Time Performance and Public Art Festival, during which John White, Judy Chicago and James Turrell '65 re-staged earlier performance art works that they originally staged at Pomona College. Of Chicago's A Butterfly for Pomona, art critic Kevin McGarry notes: "The ebb and flow of transient conditions made the Butterfly feel like an experience out of time; as the smoke cleared and some of the flames burned out, the values of light and darkness only intensified for those candles left blazing in the open air."

Federal Work Authorization Requirements and Pomona College
Life on Campus
On February 1, 2012, The New York Times published a news article about recent events regarding federal work authorization requirements at Pomona College. As a result of a complaint filed by an employee with the Board resulting in an independent investigation, the College became aware of deficiencies in the files of 84 employees regarding their work authorization documents. The Board leadership made the decision to comply with federal law, which, if violated, would result in serious civil and criminal sanctions. All but 17 employees were able to resolve the issues with their file by the deadline, and where proper documentation was not provided, the College was left with no choice but to end their employment. The actions taken by the College to address these deficiencies, as required by law, have raised questions and divided the community. For more information on the situation, including letters to the community from the administration, please visit http://www.pomona.edu/work-documentation.

Pomona College a Top Recipient of RCSA Science Research Grants
Research
The Research Corporation for Science Advancement, a foundation devoted to science, recently announced the top 10 liberal arts colleges in the United States that have received the most research grants from the foundation in its 100-year history. Pomona College is on the list with 50 grants total. In a Huffington Post article, RCSA President James M. Gentile says "the colleges on the list have...demonstrated ongoing leadership in creating environments in which science education and access to undergraduate research opportunities are closely intertwined.... Hands-on research opportunities for undergraduates combined with personalized attention from inventive professors is one of the reasons that liberal arts colleges have long played a disproportionately large role in the education of our nation's future scientists."

L.A. Times Favorably Reviews Museum Show, "It Happened at Pomona, Part II"
The Arts
The L.A. Times has written a favorable review of the second Pacific Standard Time exhibit at the Pomona College Museum of Art, "It Happened at Pomona, Part II." Art critic Christopher Knight writes, "Part two doesn't have a specific theme, since the aim is to be a straightforward chronicle of an ambitious if short-lived institutional effort to show new art. But, at least partially, one emerges anyhow. Disquiet, apprehension, precariousness -- after the lively 1960s, this is art from a gnawing age of anxiety. Sometimes it's funny, rarely is it grim; but the restlessness is apparent."

"Performance at Pomona" Previewed in L.A. Weekly as Pushing the Limits of Performance Art
Staff
One particular performance of the upcoming Performance at Pomona, a series of three performance art pieces by Judy Chicago, James Turrell '65 and John M. White, has been heralded by L.A. Weekly as a work that pushes the boundaries of performance art. James M. White's recreation of Preparation F, a piece he originally staged at Pomona in 1971, will be recreated in the gym on January 21, 2012, with current football players. The article says, "By moving a football practice onto a stage, White has moved the game out of the arena of entertainment and under the critical microscope of art. It will ask the question: Why does society condone violence if it's committed while in uniform?" Performance at Pomona is part of Pacific Standard Time's Performance and Public Art Festival, which spans 11 days and has more than 30 performances.
