Laguna Art Museum’s Art & Nature serves a number of purposes: to provide a festival of art and ideas; to inspire artists; to find and develop connections between art and science; to raise awareness of environmental issues; and to celebrate Laguna Beach as a center for the appreciation of art and nature.
For the sixth edition of Art & Nature, Elizabeth Turk will bring together 1,000 volunteer performers for the Shoreline Project, a site-specific performance, on November 3. “We are in a period celebrating difference; this inspired us to create art which champions commonality and opens doors to thinking differently. The goal of the Shoreline Project is to create experiences where strangers become neighbors and remember optimism along the way,” the artist has stated. The performers will converge at sunset on the shoreline in both spontaneous and choreographed movement, wielding LED-illuminated umbrellas designed as an evolution of the artist’s Seashell X-ray Mandala series.
Elizabeth Turk is represented by Hirschl & Adler Modern. In 2010 she was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship and the Annalee & Barnett Newman Foundation award. She has had a distinguished career internationally and bi-coastally, and her work resides in collections including the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the Weatherspoon Gallery at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, the Mint Museum, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. In 2014-15, Laguna Art Museum presented Elizabeth Turk: Sentient Forms, which included works from the Seashell X-ray Mandala series.
