In celebration of 50 years of the Laguna Art-A-Fair and Sawdust Art Festival and in the spirit of collaboration, the Passport to the Arts team came up with the idea of creating artist-made clocks that could be displayed around the city, in hotels, restaurants, galleries and within the festivals. We were inspired by the clock at the Sawdust Art Festival. The clocks will be on display during the summer festival for all to see and will be auctioned off at the end of the season, proceeds to benefit the three festivals art education programs. Visit us online at http://lagunabeachpassport.com/art-is-timeless-clock-collaboration/ for more information, a map of the clocks and a list of participating artists.

A complete list of merchant special offers is available online. Free shuttle service to the festival from various points in Laguna Beach and from the Lot #16 (Act V) parking lot will be available througout the summer.
