Explore the vibrant community of Northeast LA, in a neighborhood where hip urbanity nestles
side by side with the wilderness of the arroyo and surrounding canyons. 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. The Tour begins at the
Lummis Home, 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.
