Through August 31st – Pageant of the Masters. Life imitates art, literally: Classic paintings, statues and murals take on a new dimension as real people dress and pose to recreate original masterpieces—a trick popularized by vaudeville artiste Lolita Perine at the first festival in 1932. A professional orchestra, a narrator, intricate sets and theatrical lighting help bring the works to life at the Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach, California. This year’s theme, “The Pursuit of Happiness,” explores sources of happiness, both ancient and modern. Pageant of the Masters
