Hop on the bus and let’s see some art! First, we’ll go to Michael Skura’s studio to learn about glass art via a tour and demo. Then we’re off to meet up with Todd Gray. Be warned, you’ll leave with your sides aching from laughter as Todd won’t hold back his vivacious personality as he talks about the making of his 3D pop art sculptures. We’ll end our day exploring the old Pabst Blue Ribbon Brewery, which has been converted into over 100 studio lofts for artists. Grab a bite and enjoy a cold adult beverage as you wander the old brewery and are engrossed by artwork at every turn.

Away we go to learn about the growing art scene in the Coachella Valley. Armando Lerma will be our tour guide as he talks about his murals as part of Coachella Walls, created in partnership with the California Desert Arts Council, who will be there to tell us about the creation of this community-driven project to revitalize downtown Coachella’s Historic Pueblo Viejo District. This visit is an opportunity to learn about the arts in a neighboring community and hear from artists and partners working to preserve local history. To end our trip, we’ll make a stop in Palm Springs to enjoy a cocktail or two.
