Featuring a diverse range of fine art and craft by both emerging and established artists, the Arroyo Arts Collective Discovery Tour is one of the oldest and most interesting art tours in Los Angeles.
Attendees will have the opportunity to discover , appreciate, and purchase amazing art, while touring an eclectic mix of studios, homes, and historic buildings. Offerings include remarkable paintings in every genre, charming ceramics, dazzling wearable art, intricate metal works, hand-hewn musical instruments, finely crafted drawings and prints, sophisticated tapestries, and one-of-a-kind jewelry.
This is a self-guided tour focused on the Highland Park, Mount Washington, Eagle Rock, Montecito Heights, and Glassell Park areas. Shuttle buses will also be available with stops at select locations.
