Showcasing everything from historic masterpieces, to work by emerging artists. Here are the best art galleries in Laguna Beach.
In the 1870s, a group of artists discovered Laguna Beach and were captivated by the breathtaking beauty of the Pacific Ocean vistas, rocky coves, and mountainous terrain. These early settlers put down roots and, in 1918, founded the Laguna Beach Art Association, now named the Laguna Art Museum
. This gave rise to a flourishing art colony and, ultimately, the tourist industry Laguna Beach enjoys today.
