The Great Art Walk Round-up: Laguna Beach

Laguna Beach is the most extensive of the art walks stretching from North Laguna Beach, through “downtown” to South Laguna (see map). Being a weeknight we only covered the north and select downtown galleries, as well as the Laguna Beach Art Museum (free admission the night of art walk). The art carries a higher price tag than the other art walks, but we enjoyed the free admission to the Laguna Beach Art Museum and free wine in the galleries.

We recommend getting there early: the walk starts at 6 p.m., starts winding down at 8, and shuts down promptly at 9. The breakdown:

The Crowd: 30-60s, well-dressed
The Art: Professional contemporary art, commercial art (i.e. Wyland gallery, and “California impressionism”), potential investment pieces
What you won’t find: student art, large-scale installations, food trucks, hipsters
Gallery pick: Joanne Artman Gallery
Check out: “Sea Change” by Tanya Aguíñiga at the Laguna Beach Art Museum
After: Slices from Pizza Lounge on the beach
