Laguna Beach Art Guide

Explore Laguna Beach's rich, creative, and varied art scene during your upcoming visit to Orange County. For nearly a hundred years, Laguna Beach has acted as one of California's most vibrant and historical artistic hubs. From the opening of the city's first art gallery in 1918 to its flurry of commissioned public works in the 1960s, Laguna Beach's ongoing commitment to the visual arts has fostered a truly unique culture of creativity along our picturesque Pacific shores. Even our hotel has roots in the Laguna Beach art culture. La Casa del Camino was built by esteemed local artist William Riddell and acted as the place to be for artists, Hollywood elites, and southern California's creative types for decades.

Nowadays, Laguna Beach is home to over a hundred amazing art galleries and some of the country's most acclaimed art festivals. Whether it's the inspiring coastal views or the free spirit of the west, something about our small coastal town encourages a vibrant art community unlike any other in Southern California.

During your stay at our boutique Orange County hotel, don't miss the opportunity to visit our favorite galleries, attend one of our city's legendary art festivals, and feel the creative energy of Laguna Beach's vibrant art community.
