41st Annual California Cool Art Auction, Benefit & Bash

March 03, 2023

Join Laguna Art Museum for an unforgettable night during a signature auction and benefit as they celebrate 41 years of connecting artists, collectors, and the community. 

The museum’s largest fundraiser of the year has been reimagined to offer the preeminent California Cool experience, with a creative California-inspired culinary and cocktail experience, a special performance by musical guest and Laguna local, Grammy-nominated, Lee Rocker of the Stray Cats, an artistic photo opportunity on the red carpet with photographer Tony Pinto and the chance to meet many of California’s most notable artists supporting the museum and participating in the auction. 

For those who cannot make it, you can still participate in the online auction bidding which will continue through the evening, concluding at 8 p.m. on March 4. 

The museum-curated auction will feature works by over 125 of California’s most sought-after artists including Lita Albuquerque, Charles Arnoldi, Billy Al Bengston, Kelly Berg, Alex Couwenberg, Joe Goode, David Ligare, Jean Lowe, Andy Moses, Gwynn Murrill, Fabia Panjarian, Ruth Pastine, Astrid Preston, Ed Ruscha, Beth Waldman and many more. Proceeds from the annual auction provide vital support to the museum, directly benefiting major initiatives, education programs, exhibitions, and community engagement.
