LAGUNA BEACH ART INSTALLATION PAYS TRIBUTE TO THE WATERMAN COMMUNITY

Laguna Beach, CA
On Thursday, November 29th a dramatic unveiling occured at the corner of Beach Street and Forest Avenue, when sculptor Randy Morgan presented his gift of a sculptured mural to the Citizens of Laguna Beach. Affectionately named The Waterman’s Wall, the mural pays tribute to the rich ocean heritage and waterman culture that helps define Laguna Beach. The Waterman’s Wall is a bronze look, sculptured mural, measuring 40 feet wide by 12 feet tall, done in a classic old world style. The privately funded installation is on the outside of the Hobie Surf Shop building in downtown Laguna Beach. It was unveiled at a dedication ceremony attended by the Mayor of Laguna Beach and 300 citizens.

Creating The Waterman’s Wall for Laguna Beach is the longtime vision of Randy Morgan. I feel incredibly blessed to be given this opportunity to share my artistic talent in a way that recognizes some of these legends, and at the same time, gives back to the community I love”, says Morgan.


The term “Waterman” as defined by the mural, refers not only to surfers, but also includes skimboarders, stand-up paddlers, lifeguards, marine scientists and even filmmakers who have documented the culture. Funding for The Waterman’s Wall comes from donations made by private citizens, many of whom represent multi-generational Laguna families who share Morgan’s passion for Laguna’s rich ocean heritage and the waterman culture. The property owner’s have graciously donated the Beach Street side of the Hobie Surf Shop building to be the permanent home of The Waterman’s Wall.
