The Situational Construction art installation is sure to take breaths away. At first glance, it might appear as though a birthday were about to take place in that particular room; however, the balloon and light set up was put together to simulate the look and feel of a sunset.

Part of the 'It Happened at Pomona' exhibit, the Situational Construction art installation is one of many paying tribute to artists who studied at the Pomona College Museum of Art between 1969 and 1973. Situational Construction happens to be a recreation of Lloyd Hamrol's original piece. It was artists like him who "bridged the gap between post-Minimalism and Conceptual art and presaged the development of post-Minimalism in the later 1970s," as Pomona puts it.
