The unveiling of the museum's spring 2012 exhibitions then will officially coincide with a revamped ticketing and hours of operation policy instituted by Malcolm Warner, who took over Jan. 3 as LAM's new executive director. LAM will charge $7 for general admission, and instead of operating from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, the museum will close to the public on Wednesdays. LAM will keep those same hours on weekend days as well as on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays.

California artist Wayne Thiebaud, who recently gifted the Laguna Art Museum with a small set of works, will display a much larger collection at an exhibit opening in February. The show, titled "American Memories: Drawings, Paintings, and Prints by Wayne Thiebaud," will feature 60 to 70 pieces from throughout the artist's career, according to a release. The museum's previous Thiebaud show, "Wayne Thiebaud: Seventy Years of Painting," went on view in 2007. In October, Thiebaud donated several pieces, including the painting "Jolly Cones," to the museum when it presented him with its second annual California Art Award.

Nearly 600 people jammed into Laguna Art Museum for Feb. 4's 2012 Art Auction and afterparty, setting an attendance record since 1997 for the annual benefit event, LAM officials said.

" Laguna Beach Live! has tapped Pasadena-based composer, conductor and pianist Alan Chan, while the Laguna Dance Festival will accept applications between Sept.

This month, after nearly a century of existence, the Laguna Art Museum will officially become part of Wayne's world. That would be Wayne as in Thiebaud, the venerable artist whom the Los Angeles Times once dubbed "the dean of California painters. " Saturday evening, when Thiebaud receives the museum's California Art Award at a dinner ceremony, he plans to donate some of his works to the permanent collection. It was unclear as of press time which works the artist would choose, but executive director Malcolm Warner said he expected them to be a boon to the museum regardless.

First thing I said when I saw the magnificent paintings by Victor Hugo Zayas now hanging at Laguna Art Museum was "They're like modern Turners. " Bingo. I know everyone's all agog over the three tons of discarded firearms that Zayas used to create some dozen sculptures, which were unveiled at the Feb. 25 opening of his show, "Mi Obra," ["My Work"] to an appreciative crowd, but one that lacked the promised appearance of LAPD Chief Charlie Beck. Nevertheless, LAPD officers made their presence known and said the obligatory things: what can one say when gazing upon the bent, twisted metal of handguns other than, "Thank goodness they're off the streets.

One of the highlights of Malcolm Warner's past year was hearing Wayne Thiebaud spout an off-color joke. Although he can't recall the pun, the wisecrack led to a lasting friendship with the noted painter. This - the opportunity to build relationships with artists - is a part of being executive director of the Laguna Art Museum that Warner is greatly attached to. Warner, who celebrated his two-year anniversary in the position Jan. 2, came to Orange County after a stint at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth, Texas.
