Floating in mid-air, rising to the sky
above Laguna Beach Art-A-Fair is a sculpture of a woman and man floating in
space with a bouncing baby cradled by one of the man's hands and the woman's
arm stretched with her hand also supporting the toddler that's between the
This is but one of the many, many
sculptures that grace Laguna Beach, an artist's community with a 100+ year
history as an art colony. The sculpture is located in the air above the
Art-A-Fair building that faces across the Laguna Canyon Road to the Pageant
of the Masters outdoor theater.
In this region, the smell of
eucalyptus fills the air and high atop the hills beyond the canyon are
expensive, beautiful houses that grace the hillsides past the
brightly-colored Art-A-Fair Festival building.
The fair is really a festival for the
arts community and public to enjoy. Chosen as one of the top art festivals
in the US, every summer a select group of artists converge in Laguna Beach
with hundreds competing to be a part of this internationally juried
competition. Many artists demonstrate and create on site while visitors and
potential buyers roam and enjoy the spectacular work. The Art-A-Fair
Festival is a must see attraction in Laguna Beach. It normally is held July
through September. In addition to this exciting venue, visitors snap up
tickets to the sell-out Pageant of the Masters show held each summer.
Another top attraction in Laguna Beach also along this very stretch of
Laguna Canyon Road is Sawdust Festival, a 40+ year tradition. Sawdust
Festival also has its own permanent structure venue which is used for
several festivals that include the summer Sawdust Festival held late June
through early September and Winter Fantasy held weekends from Thanksgiving
to Christmas (subject to change).
