Art Adventures in Los Angeles

February 9, 2023 at 8:00 am - February 14, 2023 at 5:00 pm

Peters Valley School of Craft is excited to partner with Distant Horizons in hosting this amazing Art Adventures in Los Angeles trip February 9-14, 2023. 

Get to know Los Angele’s varied art and craft scene in-depth over a period of six days. This carefully designed program focuses on extraordinary arts, crafts and museums.

We will begin inland at the Sam and Alfreda Maloof Foundation for Arts and Crafts where a modest California ranch-style house grew into an amazing showcase for Sam’s woodworking skills. We will continue to the Benton Museum of Art at Pomona College to view the James Turrell Skyspace Diving the Light. Spend time exploring the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), the Craft Contemporary and the private Weisman Art Collection. Visit the American Museum of Ceramic Art (AMOCA) and later Adams Forge, where this ancient craft is being given new life.

No art themed visit to Los Angeles would be complete without visits to the beloved Getty Center and the Broad featuring presentations by Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Jean-Michael Basquiat. We will end our time with visits to an entertainment wardrobe designer and an antique shop specializing in furnishing decorative arts to the movie industry.
