Laguna Beach Cultural Arts Center needs YOU!

Be a part of launching Laguna’s first Cultural Arts Center
on historic Forest Avenue, and of maintaining Mark Chamberlain’s legacy. Sadly, Mark, co-founder, owner and curator of BC Space Gallery, passed away from cancer last year.

Mark had a vision for BC Space. In order to preserve this historic Laguna Beach venue for the future, the building’s owner will generously invest $80,000 to protect the historical aspects of the space, while making the improvements to meet the cultural, visual and performing arts needs of Laguna Beach. This GoFundMe campaign will finance the final improvements necessary to make the LB Cultural Arts Center a reality.

Venues such as BC Space are irreplaceable because they present valuable performing and visual arts for the public

As more than an art gallery, and more than a music venue, BC Space's (LB Cultural Arts Center) 2,400 square feet will also present the history of Laguna Beach’s visual and performing arts, while introducing new artists. 

LB Cultural Arts Center will provide an opportunity for our residents and visitors to understand the town’s rich art culture and history. It will also serve as an epicenter and engine for music, pre-screenings for films, classes, dance, poetry readings, artists’ talks and more. 

The BC Space remodel will amplify visitors sensory experiences by presenting artist of all kinds in a setting that fits the quality of their talents.
