Jon Seeman, 2011
An artists’ haven for more than a century, Laguna Beach has evolved into a renowned destination for world-class artists, festivals and galleries. It also boasts more than 85 pieces of public art, which you can enjoy for free while wandering the charming village. Many are the work of local artists — like this 16-foot-tall sculpture perfectly situated at a vantage point in Heisler Park where visitors can actually enjoy the whales migrating.
“In a painting, the two dimensional image is everything. In sculpture, the physical dynamics establish a connection and presence with the viewer,” Jon said, “What motivates me is the excitement of the creative process, from that spark of an idea to the challenges of construction.”
