Exhibit Reveals the Soul of Warriors

Exhibit Reveals the Soul of Warriors

  A seated man holds a hyena, an animal not exactly known for its docility, as if he were holding a lamb. Both man and beast appear at peace, having reached a common point of introspection. And, while the animal’s face has an articulated vaguely human look, the man’s face is more roughly rendered, save […]

Now, it is also the working title of an innovative commission, a first among a partnership of three Laguna Beach arts organizations that more typically present art rather than originate it.

Eye on Nature:  Coyote Caution

Eye on Nature: Coyote Caution

By Ellen Girardeau Kempler   In neighborhoods bordering Laguna’s wilderness, there’s a natural echo you often hear when fire engines answer a nighttime call.  The primal, high-pitched yips, yaps, yelps and howls of coyote packs riled by such urban sounds as sirens, alarms and domestic dogs send shudders down the spines of pet owners all […]
