Artists will compete to show their vision of Laguna in postcard form and have their work be part of a mural on Ocean Avenue.

The following is from the Aug.14 meeting of the Laguna Beach Arts Commission: The commission turned down an offer of two sculptures from the estate of the late Lew Geiser, citing safety, locational and maintenance concerns. As no one entered the Heisler Park temporary sculpture competition, the commission extended the deadline to Sept. 22, the same date as the "Postcards from Laguna" mural competition deadline. The commission discussed what to do with the current "Postcards from Laguna" murals, but has not come to a decision yet. They will be taken down when new selections are chosen for the site, but the Commission opted to wait until they see the murals' condition before determining whether to store, display or destroy them.
