Get ready to be completely blown away at this year's Pageant of the Masters, a Laguna Beach institution that began more than 80 years ago. If you've never been, any local artophile can tell you it's a series of "living pictures," huge-scale reproductions of classic artworks using real people, painted, dressed, and posed just so, to recreate a nearly identical image to the original painting or sculpture. The amount of work that goes into a Pageant production is awe-inspiring―and the final result is nothing less than breathtaking. This year's theme is “The Art Detective,” and the show centers around art pieces that have been stolen and recovered, stolen and are still missing, or were destroyed by Nazis during WWII. Bring binoculars, you won't want to miss a single detail.
