Downtown Los Angeles Art Tour

12Oct09

On September 24th, I led a diverse group of women on an art tour in downtown Los Angeles.  The field trip started out with a visit to artist Kori Newkirk‘s studio, where he discussed his trajectory as an artist, his creative process, the inspiration behind the materials he uses, and his current work.

Our next stop was a tour of the amazing permanent collection at MOCA with a wonderfully interactive guide who challenged us to really look at what we were seeing.  We learned about works by Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, Claes Oldenberg, Mark Rothko, Donald Judd, and many more.

We finished off the day with lunch at Ciudad, where I led a moderated discussion about what we learned over the course of the day, current trends in the art world and how to encourage awareness about local contemporary art programming.

If you are interested in being added to the invitation list for future cultural field trips or would like to learn more about designing a custom tour for a private group, sign up here.
