Deeply humbled by the impact of his craft on people of all ages, Star Shields has contributed to the Sawdust Art Festival for 29 years. The Laguna Beach-based face and body artist counts Led Zeppelin, Paul and Linda McCartney, Deep Purple and Bob Dylan among those who have donned his brightly hued, airbrushed outfits. "After I painted stage clothing for Led Zeppelin, Robert Plant came to visit my infamous 'flying saucer booth' incognito in a rickshaw," Shields recalled.

Barbara Diamond Fantasy met art Saturday night to celebrate the 85th anniversary of the Laguna Art Museum. "We are especially proud to present the Masquerade Ball, which is a tribute to the tradition of art in the community of Laguna Beach," museum director Bolton Colburn said. Many of the fantastic costumes worn to the ball and the masks created by artists for a silent auction were works of art themselves. Tim Dey, whom many people know from his performances in "Lagunatics," used the pages of the Los Angeles Times to make the antebellum costumes he and partner Jim Nussbaum wore.

The 'People's' Debacle   Linda Brunker's "The People's Council" sculpture was dedicated on July 6, nearly one year after the design was selected for installation in front of City Hall as part of an Art in Public Places competition — drawing more jeers than cheers for its unusual, Asian-fusion design.

EYE ON ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT Last week's First Thursday's Art Walk had to be one of the most enjoyable art walks I've ever experienced. Trotting around with Sian Poeschl, Sharbie Higuchi and local artist Michele Taylor Heath was a joy, as was continually running into ever-chipper Mike Tauber at the different galleries. After the Brown's Park art dedication, Pure Color was packed with members of the arts commission and the Community Art Project board and a couple of newly elected City Council members.
