Art Talk's Edward Goldman on OsCene 2010

On May 11th, Edward Goldman, from KCRW's Art Talk reviewed Laguna Art Museum's current exhibition, OsCene 2010: Contemporary Art and Culture in OC.

His article, Up Close and Personal: Your Only Chance, reviews his recent trips to two Southern California Museums, the Orange County Museum of Art and Laguna Art Museum. Here is what Goldman had to say about the OsCene exhibition:

"Driving another 20 minutes (from the Orange County Museum of Art), I found myself at the Laguna Art Museum, but it felt like a world away. The current exhibition (OsCene 2010), devoted to contemporary art and culture in Orange County, is a focused, thoughtful presentation of paintings, sculptures, video and photography produced by artists in the roughly fifty cities that comprise Orange County. And thankfully, this time (apposed to redundant information on the OCMA labels) each label succinctly communicated the essential information: the place and the year the artists were born and where they currently live. If you hurry, you can catch this exhibition in beautiful Laguna Beach before it closes this Sunday, May 16th."

Take Goldman's suggestion and come view Laguna Art Museum's OsCene 2010 exhibition before it closes this Sunday, May 16.
