The city’s Arts Commission extended the deadline until April 1 for artists to submit their qualifications to compete for a public art installation outside the city’s lifeguard headquarters, under construction on Main Beach.
Commissioners determined that none of the 26 applicants, artists based in Laguna Beach and elsewhere in Southern California, fully met the project requirements at their meeting on March 11.
The project consists of a sculpture and mural, budgeted at $103,000. Located at 175 N. Coast Highway, the site is at the west end of Main Beach, near rising cliffs that support Heisler Park.
Artists who have already submitted their qualifications may make changes in accordance with commission requirements, with finalists to be chosen during the April 1 meeting.
