As The Clocks Turn Back, Beach Lights Turn On

October 28, 2014

Sure, we'd love to enjoy summer all year, with lazy sunny days on the water and warm swims in the sea! As we turn our clocks back this weekend, though, it’s time to officially welcome the winter months, and enjoy the beauty and peacefulness of coastal living in the off-season. Celebrated artist, surfer and chef, Jim Denevan set a creative coastal tone at the end of Daylight Savings Time last year, with his amazing solar lantern art created on Laguna’s Main Beach for the Laguna Art Museum’s Art & Nature Festival. Known internationally for his monumental, temporary drawings on beaches throughout the world, Denevan's art is eco-friendly, and in sync with the sea. Beginning at the 4:00 a.m. low tide, Denevan worked with sticks and rakes to create a large geometric pattern of circles and spirals. Throughout the day, 40 volunteers traced his designs with approximately 2,500 solar lanterns that lit up as darkness set in.
