“We are excited to launch this digital guide in partnership with Bloomberg Philanthropies,” said Director of Exhibits Christine Georgantas. “Bloomberg Connects empowers the Festival of Arts to provide a new, dynamic way to experience art from our Permanent Art Collection and showcase our exhibitions and programs at a deeper level. We are grateful that Bloomberg Philanthropies has created such a powerful tool that not only increases opportunities for arts and cultural engagement at no cost to users, but also allows institutions like ours to share the art in our Permanent Art Collection with a wider, global audience.”

Housing more than 1,000 diverse and eclectic pieces, the Festival of Arts Permanent Art Collection is valued by the organization for its cultural and historical significance in relation to the art and culture of the Festival and local art scene in Laguna Beach. The Permanent Art Collection showcases how the Festival became a major influence in the art world of Southern California over the last nine decades, and many deem the collection a time capsule of art from the last century.

The Festival of Arts joins other notable visual art museums with digital guides on the Bloomberg Connects app, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art; The Museum of Modern Art in New York City; Walker Art Center; Brooklyn Museum; Cincinnati Art Museum; The Design Museum, London, UK; El Museo del Barrio; The Frick Collection; Hammer Museum and ICA Miami, among others.

To access the Festival’s new digital guide as well as hundreds of other museums from around the world, users can download the free Bloomberg Connects app to their smartphones by clicking here. Bloomberg Connects is also available for a free download from Google Play or the App Store.
