Annual Appeal – Give Today

100 Years of Exhibitions, Education, and Community

To mark the centennial of the Laguna Beach Art Association (LBAA) this year, my colleague Deborah Solon and I have curated an exhibition that will focus on the LBAA’s seminal years, Art Colony: The Laguna Beach Art Association, 1918-1935, opening on June 23. This exhibition will be a nostalgic experience, taking you back to a time when Laguna was still a sleepy, seaside community whose citizens took great delight in what they called “the beach that is different.”

The group of talented artists such as Frank Cuprien, Anna Hills, Edgar Payne, and William Wendt started the LBAA and established Laguna Beach as an important American art colony of the early twentieth century. Tracing our founding back to that group, Laguna Art Museum celebrates 100 years of exhibitions, art education, and community.

Today, we honor their legacy and continue to strive to bring art and inspiration to all.

To encourage you to support the museum today, I would like to offer you the opportunity to win an exclusive curator-led tour of this exhibition with a glass of champagne for up to 10 individuals. Simply make a gift of $100 or more and you will be entered into the drawing.*

As the museum embarks on its second century, our goals remain solid: to serve our community through high quality exhibitions, art education, and programs. We are here for you, and rely on you to help us continue to fulfill this critical mission. Please join me with your support.

With best wishes,

Janet Blake
Curator of Historical Art
