Pablo Vargas Lugo: Seascape
Thursday, November 2 - Sunday, December 2
Main Beach, Laguna Beach
Free admission

For the fifth edition of Art & Nature, Mexican artist Pablo Vargas Lugo has chosen to bring the intervention sponsored annually by Laguna Art Museum into the waters of the Pacific Ocean. This artwork will acknowledge the origins of Laguna Beach as a haven for plein air painters, and its character as a city whose imagination remains firmly set on the seas in spite of its incorporation into the vast urban sprawl of Southern California. During Art & Nature the ever-changing seascape and a familiar element of urban infrastructure and growth will come together, pinpointing a small section of the ocean as a seascape under observation and reminding viewers of the shifting conditions under which development and our future are taking form.
