When Gifford Myers was 10 years old, he built a functioning car out of plywood, canvas, fiberglass, wheels and an engine. The following year, he pieced together an engineless single-seater, which was then entered in the National Soapbox Derby. "I came third out of three," he said. "But it didn't bother me that I didn't win - the joy was in making it. " Once bitten by the sculpting bug, no project seemed too big to tackle. In the years since, Myers moved on to photography, architecture and painting.

Between May 2011 and January 2012, Robert Hayden III wore four hats at the Laguna Art Museum. During that seven-month stretch before Malcolm Warner settled in at LAM's helm, Hayden served as its interim director, its interim director of development and head of the search committee for a new executive director. While he juggled those challenges, Hayden said he continued in his normal role of presiding over the museum's Board of Trustees. And he even managed to moonlight in the evenings in his regular job as chief financial officer for his family-run firm, Placentia-based Industrial Metal Finishing Inc. All that work culminated in his being honored with the Arts Leadership award at Sunday's Art Star Awards in Laguna Beach, presented by the Laguna Beach Alliance for the Arts and hosted by [seven-degrees]

To understand the magnitude of the Laguna Art Museum's display the last weekend of November, don't think of it as five fragments from a project that totals more than 48,000 pieces. Think of it, instead, as a few life stories that add up to hundreds of years among them. This fall, for the first time, the museum will display five blocks - 12-by-12-foot segments that contain up to eight panels stitched together - from the AIDS Memorial Quilt, a project that the NAMES Project Foundation launched in 1987 to raise awareness about the disease.

?Outraged? is as good a word as any to describe how the Laguna Beach art community feels upon learning of the sale of 18 California Impressionist works originally donated to the Laguna Art Museum many years ago and lost in a failed merger attempt with what is now the Orange County Museum of Art.
