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, including the newly re opened Southwest Museum, a beloved monument to our past, and now a focus of opportunity for our future. The Arroyo Arts Collective is proud to partner with the Autry Museum in making this location available for the first time as part of the Tour.

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 self-guided auto tour focuses on Highland Park, Mount Washington, Eagle Rock, Montecito Heights, and Glassell Park. Shuttle buses will also be available with stops at select locations.

Northeast Los Angeles—or NELA, as the locals call it—is a magnet neighborhood for artistic talent. With a steady influx of new galleries, restaurants and boutiques, NELA attracts creative energy across many cultures. In fact, NELA has a rich artistic history that dates back to the late 19th century when poets, writers, and artists would gather to socialize at El Alisal, Charles Lummis’ home on Avenue 43. Around the same time and just a few miles north, landscape painter William Lee Judson established the College of Fine Arts of the University of Southern California.

Don’t miss the opportunity to discover—or rediscover—this unique neighborhood and the artists who call it home.

Purchase Tour tickets in advance for $10 or the day of the Tour for $15. Online or at Galco's Soda Pop Stop 5702 York Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90042.  If you purchase online, your tickets will be held at will call at the Lummis Home.

The Tour begins at the Lummis Home,  200 E Ave 43,  Los Angeles, CA 90031 where participants will receive a map and tour badge. Maps will be available beginning at 9:30 a.m., and studios will open at 10 a.m.

Tour2012postcard-z

For the 20th year, the Arroyo Arts Collective presents for, your enjoyment, a tour of artists’ homes and studios in Mount Washington, Eagle Rock, Montecito Heights, Glassell Park and Highland Park, arguably the birthplace of the arts in Los Angeles.  

In 1895 Charles Lummis built his home “El Alisal” home on Avenue 43. Lummis was the first city editor of the Los Angeles Times, the head librarian of the new Los Angeles Public Library, and in 1907 established the Southwest Museum, Los Angeles’ first museum....
At El Alisal he did a legendary amount of entertaining, through salons he called "noises," for local artists, actors and visiting writers, dignitaries and celebrities. Will Rogers, Theodore Roosevelt, Clarence Darrow, John Philip Sousa, John Muir, Charles Russell and Carl Sandburg all came to visit at El Alisal for those parties/salons.

This wonderful celebration of the arts, and the artist, has been a tradition continued by the Arroyo Arts Collective Discovery Tour, the oldest such celebration in the city.

For the 20th year, the Tour will showcase over 100 artists’ artists’ homes and studios who’s work can include painting, sculpture, ceramics, collage, computer graphics, photography, letterpress, printmaking, fiber arts, and spray can art.

Tickets for this self-guided auto tour are available for $10 in advance, or for $15 on the day of the Tour. The Tour begins at the historic Lummis Home. Maps and a tour badge will be available beginning at 9:30 a.m., and studios will open at 10 a.m. Shuttle buses will be available with stops at select locations.
