The Chaffey Community Museum of Art (CCMA) is one of the latest and most visible signs of arts and cultural life in the Inland Empire. CCMA’s 2013 move to the current location marks the first time in its 72 year history that the museum has stood alone as its own facility. On November 17, 2013 I was among the full house of individuals that attended the opening reception for the exhibits “Mythmakers,” “Salute!” and “The Color-Go-Round,” which took place from 2pm to 4pm. Upon entry to the main gallery, visitors were faced with the “Salute!” mural, a lettering design that announces the presence of the exhibit by that name. The exhibit was mounted in honor of, or in other words, to salute the many creative members whose works it features. From it, works by two artists, Helen Hayes and Gina Egan, who are both formally trained, degree-holding artists, were selected to become part of CCMA’s permanent collection The announcement of the two “winners” was the much anticipated high point of the reception.
