Art & Nature

Details

Art & Nature serves a number of purposes: to provide a festival of art and ideas for the community; to inspire artists; to find and develop connections between art and science; to raise awareness of environmental issues; and to celebrate Laguna Beach as a center for the appreciation of art and nature. Art & Nature includes a work of art specially commissioned for the event – Seascape – an installation off Main Beach by Mexico City-based artist Pablo Vargas Lugo; concurrent exhibitions inside the museum as part of the Getty’s initiative Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA, a far-reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles; a keynote lecture by renowned California historian William Deverell; and a free family festival exploring art and the natural world. In addition to events at the museum, Laguna Art Museum will partner with local galleries and other organizations hosting Art & Nature-related exhibitions.
