Laguna Art Museum Presents Rebeca Méndez for Ninth Annual Art & Nature Festival
Laguna Art Museum will present the ninth annual Art & Nature festival, a multidisciplinary exploration of art’s various engagements with the natural world, November 4-7.
The museum will also hold the annual Art & Nature Gala on November 6, an immersive evening of Art & Nature supporting Laguna Art Museum’s far-reaching art education and exhibition programs.
This year’s Art & Nature featured artist, Rebeca Méndez, will present Any-Instant-Whatever, a multimedia experience depicting a contemplation of a day in Los Angeles that captures a cloud-rich sky above the lively city and its inhabitants.
According to Méndez, the sky and the sun in Los Angeles are both great unifying forces, infusing a certain relaxed Southern Californian style in its people, as well as equalizers, whose light and warmth caress everyone. People in Los Angeles from all walks of life experience the same sky—something we all have in common.
Additional Art & Nature festival programming includes the First Thursdays Art Walk on November 4, a keynote lecture on November 5 from Dr. Daniel Lewis, the Dibner Senior Curator for the History of Science & Technology at the Huntington Library, Art Museum & Botanical Gardens, the new Jessie Arms Botke art exhibition opening on November 5, the Art & Nature Gala on November 6, the annual Family Festival on November 14, plus additional events throughout the fall season.
Continuing Laguna Beach's legacy as a center for the arts, Art & Nature provides a unique opportunity for the Southern California community to come together for a festival of art and ideas, to inspire artists, and enhance the appreciation of nature as a place that inspires awareness about the environment we share.
