Since 2018, Peters Valley has been offering unique opportunities to see the arts and craft of the world through our Travel Program. Each trip is led by knowledgeable tour guides and Peters Valley’s Executive Director, Kristin Muller.
We are delighted to share our newest upcoming program in partnership with Distant Horizons: Art Adventures in Los Angeles from February 9-14, 2023! Over a period of 6 days you will see Los Angeles’ varied art and craft scene, focusing on extraordinary arts, crafts, and museums.
“This is a unique and rare opportunity to explore many Los Angeles area cultural gems with experts leading the tours and presentations. Having hosted a tour to Morocco with Distant Horizons I can assure you they provide very specially curated experiences for travelers,” says Kristin Muller, who will accompany the group during the trip.

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, collection and gallery. 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. Each visit will include guided curator or director presentations to provide an in-depth look at the collections.
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 Michael Schmidt, and an antique shop specializing in furnishing decorative arts to the movie industry owned by curator Kim Ahara.
This adventure of Los Angeles takes place from February 9-14, 2023. If you have other questions and would like additional information please visit this link or contact Kristin Muller at firstname.lastname@example.org. Space is limited – please book early!
