On June 30, 2015 the Laguna Art Museum honored Ruth Lilly Westphal, a Newport Beach resident, as the first recipient of the California Art Award. The California Art Award is a new award that Laguna Art Museum, a museum of California art, will bestow upon individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the study and public awareness of California art. In the 1980s and early 90s, Westphal published three books that became the foundation for the serious study and reassessment of early California art. These books include Plein Air Painters of California: The Southland (1982), Plein Air Painters of California: The North (1986), and American Scene Painting: California, 1930s and 1940s (1991). The California Art Award Dinner took place in the museumís California Gallery where guests were surrounded by paintings from the 1920s featured in the museumís current exhibition Modern Spirit and the Group of Eight. The event featured a three-course dinner catered by 24 Carrots, preceded by a cocktail reception with live music. Speakers included Ruthís long-time friend and avid art collector Gene Crain; Laguna Art Museumís curator of collections Janet Blake; Executive Director Malcolm Warner; The Irvine Museumís Executive Director Jean Stern; and Historical Collections Council President Bob Ehrlich. x21214.
