Art & Cultural Journalist

Liz Goldner haunted NYC museums, particularly MoMA, as a teenager, and later worked in general journalism, covering food, fashion, business, touring museums in her spare time. In 2000, she became the OC Metro art columnist, and soon graduated to reviewing art for several other publications. When appropriate, she addresses in her writing the relationship of art to social and political issues.

Living in Laguna Beach, she writes about artists, art trends, art administrators, exhibitions and venues in Laguna, Southern California and nationwide for: KCET Artbound, Artillery magazine, Los Angeles Review of Books, Art Ltd., ArtScene, Laguna Beach Art Magazine, Premiere OC and other publications.

She has written for Art and Living, Coast, the Huffington Post, Laguna Beach Magazine, Orange Coast, Orange County Register, OC Register Magazine, Riviera and Women in the Arts. She is also writing co-writing a book on the Laguna Canyon Project.

In May 2016, she won three Orange County Press Club awards.
First Place was for KCET: The Roots of Radical Art at University of California, Irvine.
Second place was for KCET: Sandow Birk: Re-contextualizing the California Experience.
Third place was for Art Ltd: “Alien She” exhibition at OCMA review.

In November 2016, she was nominated for a Los Angeles Press Club National Arts & Entertainment Journalism Award for her KCET Artbound article, Laguna Beach in the Sixties.
