Art People: The Pageant Portraits - Laguna Art Museum
Matthew Rolston’s exhibition of Art People: The Pageant Portraits opens this Sunday, June 27th at Laguna Art Museum.
This exhibit features Rolston’s larger-than-life, strangely haunting photographs of participants in Laguna Beach’s Pageant of the Masters, known for its elaborate tableau vivant presentations. The exhibition connects two of the most beloved cultural institutions of Laguna Beach, a city founded as an arts colony in the early 20th century, while celebrating the broader history of art and photography that defines the cultural heritage of California. Art People is accompanied by a lavishly illustrated catalogue with essays on various aspects of the project.
