From time to time we offer Ruskin Art Club members, family, and friends, opportunities to tour historic sites in the LA area, visit the studios of artists and crafts persons, and view rare art and book collections.
Field trips are free of charge. Space is particularly limited for this field trip. Reserve early! We need an accurate count of those planning to attend, so please send your RSVP (firm) as soon as possible to: firstname.lastname@example.org ; or call (310) 640-0710.
These “behind the scenes” looks at the work of local artists, crafts persons, curators, scholars, and historic preservationists not only enrich our life together as a cultural association, but are a vital part of our mission to “see” the city and to engage with the many artists who embody Ruskin’s vision of the integration of art and life.
