Art Travel Guide

An Art Travel Guide: Focus on Los Angeles

If you love art, the best way to pursue your passion is to immerse yourself in it – and to travel around world to visit museums, galleries and more.

Therefore, I started a small “art travel guide” for those of you that want to go on vacation with an artistic theme. Every so often I will post a travel guide for a city or place that immerses itself in Art. A city that celebrates art and that has a special event going on.

If you have any recommendation then let me know…

Los Angeles houses noteworthy museums and galleries, including the Getty Center (now at two locations) and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on the Westside as well as the Norton Simon Museum and the Huntington Library, Art Collection and Botanical Gardens on the Eastside.

Must-see museum exhibition:
Degas - The RehearsalDegas at the Getty
through June 11 – Getty Center

The Getty’s broad and important holdings of paintings, drawings, and photographs by Edgar Degas are the focus of this exhibition, which offers a rare opportunity to explore the artist’s mastery across media. The exhibition brings together, for the first time, a wide variety of works by Degas that are usually displayed in different areas of the Museum.

There are many more things to see in LA. The opportunities are virtually endless. whatever you do, enjoy it and get inspired.

Happy and Safe travels!
