The Cultural Arts Society was formed in the fall of 2009 by representatives from the University of La Verne, Hillcrest residents and staff, and the community-at-large. It was established as a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization, under the auspices of Hillcrest Retirement Community. From its inception, the Cultural Arts Society has been committed to providing access to the arts by bringing the arts to our community at affordable prices, honoring artists by paying them a fair fee, encouraging local performing and visual artists, and promoting the arts in our schools.
Strong support from Hillcrest, donors and subscribers has made it possible for the Cultural Arts Society to:
Honorary Chair: Don Kendrick, La Verne Mayor
Barbara Smythe, Chair & Hillcrest Resident
Matthew Neeley, CEO Hillcrest
Leroy Lapp, Hillcrest Resident
Margaret Aiechele, dA Center for the Arts
Shirley Turner, Hillcrest Marketing
Karen Cahill, Professional Musician
Joanne Wagoner, Hillcrest Resident
Skip Clague, University of La Verne
Karen Clobes, Secretary
We are extremely grateful to those of you who choose to join our Cultural Arts Society Donor’s Circle with your generous donations. You play a vital role in sustaining our mission of encouraging, promoting and providing access to the arts in our community. Thank you for your commitment to the arts!

Eric is a special friend of the Gallery at Hillcrest. He was instrumental in the actual creation of the gallery, connected us with the art community, and has been very generous in giving his time and expertise to enriching the experience at the gallery. His most recent project was the artistic rendition of the historic panels for the Galen & Doris Beery Memorial Exhibit – The Story of La Verne.
