Flamingo on Vacation
I was driving past homes in Laguna Beach, I noticed that there weren’t
any plastic pink flamingos on the lawns. Something has to be done about
this!” Those are the words of How Original! An Art Gallery in Laguna
Beach owner Loretta Alvarado.
who know about the gallery and Alvarado know never to pass off her
‘thought process.’ You see, a little over a year ago, she saw a lonely
discarded toilet on a front porch and she immediately had the thought that
toilets could be an art form. Her creative exhibit garnered national
publicity and a huge number of entries.
with an opening reception on Saturday, July 5 from six to eight in the
evening, How Original! will have two separate, simultaneous exhibits.
The first is about plastic flamingos,
painted, dressed, or otherwise decorated to the artist’s taste. The
second is for two-dimensional artists and their favorite interpretation of
summer’s exhibit has entries from all over the country. There are many
fun and fanciful entries. Who could resist a flamingo titled Attack of the 100 Foot Tall Radioactive Killer Flamingo? And, not
only is this exhibit fun to look at, but all the entries will be for sale!
Yes, you too can purchase your very own bit of kitsch and help a worthy cause at the same time. Ten percent of the sales price will go to help support the non-profit Greater Laguna Historical Group and its Laguna Beach Independent newspaper.
