About the sponsor:
Laguna Art Museum is a museum of California art. Its mission is to collect, care for, and exhibit works of art that were created by California artists or represent the life and history of the state. Through its permanent collection, its special exhibitions, its educational programs, and its library and archive, the museum enhances the public’s knowledge and enjoyment of California art of all periods and styles, and encourages art-historical scholarship in this field.
The museum is proud to continue the tradition of the Laguna Beach Art Association, founded in 1918 by the early California artists who discovered the town and fostered a vibrant arts community. The gallery that the association built in 1929 is part of today’s Laguna Art Museum. Laguna Art Museum is a destination for anyone interested in California art. Unlike any other museum in the state, it collects California art and only California art, and ranges across all periods and styles, nineteenth-century to present-day. Its collection, exhibitions, publications, and educational programs are all dedicated to developing the public appreciation of California art.
