The Laguna Beach Cultural Arts Center stage is named after one of our town's most cherished poets: John Gardiner. Laguna Beach has long had a rich tradition in poetry. Famed poet, Shelley once said, "Poetry is an art that lies in the soul and spirit of man since the beginning of time." Here, at the LBCAC, we look to celebrate and foster poets, from Laguna Beach and beyond, and provide them with a stage on which they can express their profound truths and shared wisdom.
