Claremont Artist Passes

The Daily Bulletin reports that Claremont artist Milford Zornes passed away at his home Sunday.

Zornes recently celebrated his 100th birthday, and the Square i Gallery on Yale Ave. just finished a retrospective show of Zornes' watercolors. You can also see a fine example of Zornes' work at the Claremont Post Office, where a WPA mural he finished in 1937 adornes the walls. The post office is located at 140 N. Harvard Ave.

Bulletin reporter Diana Sholley's article today says that there is no service planned and that the family considers Zornes 100th birthday celebration last month a fitting tribute to his life.
