Join us as we embark on a journey of a hundred years, commemorating the remarkable legacy of the Arts & Science Center through the heartfelt stories of cherished community advocates.  The SALT Block Foundation proudly presents this journal that encapsulates a century of creativity, innovation, and human connection through captivating narratives highlighting the transformation from its inception as Claremont High School to its present-day glory. The SALT Block Foundation serves as the benevolent landlord for the upkeep of the block and offsets the operational cost for our five resident organizations.  

We look forward to the opportunities that this will open for our community to share their stories with us as well.  Save the date for our upcoming Anniversary Gala on September 14th, 2024.
