Kicking off the festivities will be “Art Colony: The Laguna Beach Art Association, 1918-1935,” which will display approximately 100 paintings, including a number of works by major artists that were seen in the original exhibitions of the Laguna Beach Art Association, the group led by Anna Hills and Edgar Payne that hosted its first showing at a small pavilion near the Laguna Beach Hotel, leading to what is now the museum.
