Laguna Art Museum is a museum of California art. Its purpose is to provide exposure to art and to promote understanding of the role of art and artists through collection, conservation, exhibition, research, scholarship, and education.
Laguna Art Museum presents a retrospective of the work of Clarence Hinkle (1880-1960), an early twentieth-century artist who radiated the spirit of modernism. Additionally, the complementary exhibition on the Group of Eight, of which Hinkle was a member, provides a fresh perspective on the art and culture of the 1920s in Los Angeles.
Participation in Museum Day is open to any tax-exempt or governmental museum or cultural venue on a voluntary basis. Smithsonian magazine encourages museum visitation, but is not responsible for and does not endorse the content of the participating museums and cultural venues, and does not subsidize museums that participate.
