lagunaartmuseum TONIGHT at 7:00 p.m. | Film Night: Dark Passage (1947) | At New York’s Strand Theater, in September 1947, Warner Brothers opened Dark Passage staring Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall, their third picture together and the first filmed after their marriage. New York Times reviewer Bosley Crowther wrote about the city of San Francisco being “liberally and vividly employed as the realistic setting” for the picture. Director and writer Delmar Daves “smartly and effectively used the picturesque streets of that city and its stunning panoramas from the hills to give a dramatic backdrop to his rather incredible yarn.” In contrast, The Big Sleep, Bacall and Bogie’s second picture, was filmed entirely on the Warner Brothers studio lot. Boring! The unique aspect of Dark Passage is that we don’t see Bogie’s face for a sixty-two minutes! He has escaped from San Quentin where he was imprisoned for killing his wife—a crime he did not commit. (The Fugitive anyone?) Therefore he gets plastic surgery to change his appearance while he hunts the real killer. Naturally Bacall comes to his aid. Come and enjoy the movie and see how many locations you recognize. The Golden Gate Bridge will be an easy one. | Included with museum admission (members free; non-members $5 or $7) @lagunaartmuseum #art #fineart #museum #artmuseum #film #filmnight #darkpassage #humphreybogart #laurenbacal #tonight #laguna #lagunabeach 2w

lagunaartmuseum Marcia Hafif - From The Inventory | "Painting near the ocean in California, and walking often on the shore, I was influenced by the colors of the sea, the sky and the sand, by the seashells and seaweed, the dark clouds over the horizon in the evening, the shining colors reflected in the sand as the waves fell back."- Marcia Hafif | Now on view at Laguna Art Museum until September 27th @lagunaartmuseum #art #fineart #marciahafif #minimalism #grey #blue #pacificocean #museum #artmuseum #lagunabeach #laguna 2w

lagunaartmuseum Laguna Beach: The Art Colony and Its History | Thursday, June 25 @ 6:00 p.m.
Free admission | Janet Blake, curator of historical art, will give a presentation on the history of the Laguna Beach art colony from the late nineteenth century to the 1930s. The lecture will tell the story of how the little seaside community became a mecca for American artists and how those artists joined to form an art association for the purpose of exhibiting and selling their work as well as promoting the community as a champion of the arts. That organization—the Laguna Beach Art Association—was founded in August 1918 and was the forerunner of today’s Laguna Art Museum, which occupies the building that the LBAA opened on Cliff Drive in February 1929. @lagunaartmuseum #art #fineart #lecture #tonight #curator #museum #artmuseum #history #laguna #lagunabeach
