“Not to be shocking means to agree to be furniture.” Scrawled in an upper corner of an Orange County Museum of Art hallway, the phrase suits the times, as three new art shows bring the scandalous, the avant-garde and the satirical to Orange County. The Orange County Museum of Art has launched a major new retrospective of the works of Peter Saul, compiled from the past several decades. Saul is a controversial pioneer of pop art whose works, called “sick jokes” by Robert Storr, the curator and dean of the Yale School of Art, inspired legions of fans.

LAGUNA BEACH — Newport Beach artist Jason Maloney and the Laguna Art Museum are challenging Orange County children to think like an artist in a special hands-on workshop Sunday. "Build Your Own Art Shack," in conjunction with the museum's ongoing "Art Shack" exhibition, will provide children with supplies and Maloney's artistic guidance as they design they're own miniature "shacks"— brightly decorated wooden birdhouses. "The idea is to get kids in there and to see what the artists have done and how they've created this positive element out of something that might have a negative connotation," Maloney said.

Renaissance woman and Newport Beach resident Ruth Westphal, 80, is a self-titled, life-long "gallery hopper. " Though her professional trajectory placed her in a teaching career and at the helm of her own successful business, her passion for art has carved out a significant place in her life. The results of her artistic investment went on to enrich countless art history projects and helped raise the bar for chronicling artists and their work. Westphal compiled three books on California artists in the '80s and '90s that laid the groundwork for a comprehensive examination of early California Impressionism and scene painting.

The fortune cookie told the story of my life: “You will step on the soil of many countries.” After cracking open the after-dinner cookie Tuesday, I slipped the piece of paper bearing my fortune into my wallet and forgot about it. My life has been made from the clay of many countries, but little did I know that those foretelling words would come true again the following evening. And I didn’t have to travel far. I drove down Pacific Coast Highway to attend an event at the Laguna Art Museum hosted by a fellow global-minded citizen, Doug Wilson, who was a stranger to me. About 140 people showed up, including some folks from Newport-Mesa, to hear an informal talk by two world human rights experts and to take part in a town hall-like question-and-answer session.
