    Kelp is on the way
    Laguna Beach's annual Kelpfest was born out of frustration. Every time Nancy Caruso heard people grouse about kelp washing up on local beaches, she'd want to "bang her head against a wall." To her, that was akin to planting trees only to gripe when they...

  • Repurposing the obsolete

    Repurposing the obsolete
    Michael Graham was on the wrong kind of a roll. Since 1993, he'd applied for various public art opportunities in and around Laguna Beach — 10, to be exact. Invariably, he'd make it to the finals, right to the cusp of victory, before being turned...
