In an effort to market its cultural wares to visitors, the Laguna Beach Visitors & Conference Bureau will open an exhibit showcasing the town’s past and present through its arts organizations this weekend in John Wayne Airport’s new Terminal C.
The exhibit debuts July 15 and runs through October. The 11 wall-mounted art display cases are located along a pedestrian walkway between Terminal B & C ticket counters, prior to the security checkpoints, and are open to the general public for viewing.
The presentation includes images from Sawdust Art Festival, Art-A-Fair, Festival of Arts and Pageant of the Masters, The Laguna Playhouse and Laguna Art Museum, dating from 1904 to the present.
“The showcases tell the story of the arts of Laguna Beach and the history of our festivals through both two and three- dimensional works of art and photographs,” said exhibit curator Cynthia Fung, also marketing director for Sawdust Art Festival.
