Festival of Arts

A typical summer day in Laguna Beach is defined by the Festival of Arts. They offer an incredible art tradition called Pageant of the Masters that locals and international visitors highly anticipate. For those not familiar, tableaux vivants or “living pictures” takes place when the actors pose as part of a classic painting that is put into motion as a live performance. Showcasing artists work that is for sale is part of the summer programing. We look forward to gathering again this summer with the recent announcement of the return of the festival. The 2021 production of Made in America: Trailblazing Artists and Their Stories will run July 7 – September 3, 2021 with tickets on sale beginning May 3. 
Over the years, Festival of Arts have created an incredible repository of painting, prints, and historical images that are part of the permanent art collection. Art pieces are hung yearlong in the FOA South Gallery located in Active Culture at 1006 S Coast Hwy, Laguna Beach, CA 92651. This satellite gallery is currently exhibiting Portraits. Stop by and enjoy it before it closes on April 30th!
