Art-A-Fair Fine Art Festival joins the fight to protect wild horses with selected exhibitors sharing in the painting of an official wild horse sculpture, which will be sold to support Return to Freedom, American Wild Horse Sanctuary.

Artists will paint live in front of Art-A-Fair through Monday, Aug. 25, and visitors will have an opportunity to meet them and photograph the sculpture.

The equine statue horse will be sold Aug. 26 to benefit RTF, based in Lompoc and founded by Neda DeMayo in 1997. She rescues entire herds, conserves rare breeds, and educates people about the natural world, and lobbies for policies to protect the wild horse.

Modeled after the Elephant Parade America, which raised $300,000 for the endangered Asian elephant, Art-A-Fair’s contribution is part of a “A Horse of a Different Color,” a traveling art exhibit of 50 to 60 mustangs to benefit the sanctuary.

 

Young Artists’ Work Earns Praise

The annual Festival of Arts also showcases the work of over 300 students in a Junior Art Exhibit. Its moment in the summer sun comes at 11 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 17, when medals are awarded to the top three students from each grade, pre-kindergarten through high school seniors.

A representative of PIMCO Foundation will issue the awards on the festival grounds, 650 Laguna Canyon Rd.

Festival admission is $6-$10 on weekends and is free to Laguna Beach residents.
