BEST BETS: Sunday 7/28

July 25, 2002

all day Art

Surf's up in Laguna in more ways than one as the Laguna Art Museum hosts the waves-inspired survey "Surf Culture: The Art History of Surfing," beginning Sunday. The curators look to make a connection by surveying a cross-disciplinary group: artists who surf and surfers who make art, including quintessential California artists like Robert Irwin and Billy Al Bengston.

"Surf Culture: The Art History of Surfing," Laguna Art Museum, 307 Cliff Drive, Laguna Beach. Ends Oct. 6. Daily, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.; closed Wednesdays. Sunday to Sept. 2, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Adults, $5; seniors and students, $4; children 12 and younger, free. (949) 494-8971.

2pm New Music

Another in the continuing series of three-hour composer's salons given by American Composers Forum takes place at Rocco, at Whose Cafe in Hollywood. Represented this time are works by Andrew Durkin, Jonathon Grasse, Karl Montevirgen and Richard Zvonar. Alex Shapiro is moderator.
