Shoreline Project .01

November 3, 2018 @ 5:45 pm - 7:45 pm

WHAT IS SHORELINE PROJECT



Shoreline Project is a 1000-person community project based upon Elizabeth Turk’s body of work, titled Seashell X-Ray Mandala Series. The seashell mandala image has been transferred to the canopy of 1,000 umbrellas and lit by an LED shaft. These sculpted umbrellas will be carried by community participants along Laguna’s Main Beach at sunset. Viewed from the cliffs and filmed from above, the image will be one of 1,000 beautiful lights moving together.



This community experience is hosted by the Laguna Art Museum, for the fifth annual Art & Nature program. 

The event takes place November 3, 2018, on Main Beach, Laguna Beach, CA.



Elizabeth Turk is a native Californian artist. She is inspired by the natural world, often referencing its myriad of elegant organic structures. Turk’s work makes possible what seems impossible and, in the process, slows us down, to inspire a deeper understanding. Her work is incomplete until abandoned to larger environments, thus humbling the intensity of her creative focus.



In 2010 Turk was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship and the Annalee & Barnett Newman Foundation award. Her MFA is from the Maryland Institute College of Art, Rinehart School of Sculpture and her BA is from Scripps College. She has been represented by Hirschl and Adler, Modern since 2000, while exhibiting experimental concepts at other venues. In 2018 Elizabeth Turk established a 501c3 under the name, ET Studios. ET Studios is a non-profit group formed to create change through creative arts.
