Bram Dijkstra will give lecture As part of the Laguna Art Museum's Talk of the Town, the museum will host a special event at 11 a.m. Sunday with Bram Dijkstra, cultural historian and author, who will present an illustrated lecture and sign copies of his latest book, "American Expressionism, Art and Social Change, 1920-1950." Dijkstra is professor emeritus of comparative literature at the UC San Diego and the author of several books.

The book is illustrated throughout with works of art seldom seen today.

With the great weather and the holidays, the first two days of the new year almost felt like summer. These were also the first two days of our new Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). It was great to see so many people enjoying themselves on the beach, exploring the tidepools and, despite the cold water, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, surfing and SUP boarding. In other words, it was a normal day at the beach. I guess the many people quoted in the press warning that the new marine reserves would limit these activities were either mis-informed or just fear-mongering.

Gene Felder Laguna Art Museum is a museum to be proud of and one worth maintaining and preserving for future generations. Over the years, the Laguna Art Museum has added to the cultural and educational life of our city and has helped ensure our identity as an "art colony" which contributes significantly to our economy. The Laguna Beach Art Association, founded in 1918, was the predecessor to the Laguna Art Museum. It was this seminal institution that spawned the Pageant of the Masters and the Festival of Arts among other important cultural organizations in Laguna, including the Art Institute of Southern California.
