All community members are invited to attend the opening reception on Friday, September 20 of the second installation of “Radical Beauty, Malibu Rising,” the City of Malibu Cultural Arts Commission’s public art exhibition in City Hall that explores the experience of the Woolsey Fire.

“The artistic expressions of this historic disaster that we have shared are an important way for us to understand what we have been through and support each other as we recover,” said Mayor Jefferson “Zuma Jay” Wagner. “I hope everyone in Malibu can join us for the reception and see the art pieces made by our friends and neighbors.”

The first installation of Radical Beauty, Malibu Rising was a collaborative community exhibition which featured photography, paintings, drawing, sculpture, short films, and written work. It has been on display in City Hall since May 2019 and will conclude at the end of August 2019.

Due to the overwhelmingly positive response and community interest, the Cultural Arts Commission will curate the second installation of Radical Beauty, Malibu Rising. On Friday, September 20 at 6:30 PM, the Cultural Arts Commission will host a public opening reception at Malibu City Hall (23825 Stuart Ranch Road, Malibu CA 90265). The event is free and open to all; RSVPs or tickets are not required.

The second installation of Radical Beauty, Malibu Rising will be on display from September 23 through December 2019. The exhibit is free and open to all to view at City Hall Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Friday 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Artists of all ages were invited to submit their original artwork, including photography, paint, drawing, collage, short films, free standing art and written, for this collaborative community-wide art show.
