Laguna Beach’s most exclusive art gallery, Top of the World Elementary School’s Dolphin Gallery, opened its doors for the second time on Friday, Feb. 8.

The exhibition featured over 680 visual artists and an assortment of TOW student instrumentalists, who provided the musical backdrop for the evening.

The one-night exhibition featured a visual art piece created by every student and a hands-on art station for younger artists. The event was intended to bring families and friends into the school to showcase the artistic talents of TOW’s students, reflecting the town’s arts colony heritage and the district’s ongoing commitment to arts education.

TOW Arts Night is sponsored by the TOW PTA as well as funding by a Festival of Arts Foundation grant.
