The Conversation With… series brings artists and other creative minds to Laguna Art Museum to discuss their practice in a casual conversation with guests. Participating in this month’s Conversation With… series is Elizabeth Turk, best known for her intricate marble sculptures. In 2010 Turk was the recipient of a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship, also know as the MacArthur “genius award.”
Elizabeth Turk grew up in Orange County, “walking out her life decisions on the beach between Orange Street and Huntington Beach.” Following in her father’s footsteps, she attended the Claremont colleges, where she studied International Relations. While working in Washington, DC, Turk attended graduate school in Baltimore, Maryland Institute College of Art, and then moved to New York. Turk has received numerous fellowships and grants, including a research fellowship from the Smithsonian and a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship, as well as several prestigious artist-in-residence awards. She has exhibited widely in the U.S. and internationally. Currently, she splits her time between the coasts.
The museum is open for free from 5:00-9:00 p.m. the first Thursday of each month. Guests are encouraged to view the museum’s current exhibitions as well as participate in the Laguna Beach First Thursday Art Walk which takes place at area galleries from 6:00-9:00 p.m.
