Event History

The Las Laguna Art Gallery, since 2013, has ran unique themed exhibitions. The gallery is situated in the center of Laguna Beach, California and a go to destination for tourists who come to Laguna Beach to experience and purchase art.

What Makes this event different?

Unlike most of the area's art galleries who accept only local artists; the Las Laguna Art Gallery has provided opportunities for local, national and international artists from well known, to up and coming artists.

Call for entries for artists

For this exhibit the Las Laguna Art Gallery asks artists to explore the notion of cultural and pop icons. A cultural icon is an object made by a human being that is identified by members of a culture as representative of that culture or a physical thing such as the national tree, flower or pastime.​

As an example, America is often represented in art by an apple pie, a flag, baseball, the Statue of Liberty or an Eagle. In the case of England cultural icons may be a red telephone booth or double-decker bus. For France, cultural icons may be the Eiffel Tower or a Gallic rooster. For Japan, cultural icons may be the Maneki-neko (beckoning cat), the Cherry blossom tree, or Koi fish.​

Countries and major cities across the globe can be identified by their icons. Think of New York and the Big Apple; San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge or Trolley Car.

Pop icons can be movie stars, recording stars, athletes, or people throughout history that did something notable and are remembered long after their passing. Examples of pop icons include Elvis Presley, Gandhi, Frida Kahlo, Mozart, Einstein, Michael Jackson, Walt Disney, David Bowie, Prince, John Wayne, Bruce Lee, Elton John, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, Bruce Springsteen and many others. Sometimes these pop icons can be identified by a single symbol like Prince and his use of an identifiable mark or Elton John and his iconic glasses or the Rolling Stones and the graphic lips. This exhibition invites artists to explore the premise of cultural or pop icons.​
