Cartwheel Art Tours Coverage: Neighborhood Explorations in Mid-Wilshire with Cartwheel Art Tours Host – Michelle Homami
“Treasures of Public Art and LA History in the Miracle Mile District”
Michelle Homami, a true born & raised Los Angeles native and Airbnb traveler, as well as being a contributor for Cartwheel Art Magazine, who has had the joy of living in the Miracle Mile District for the past 3.5 years, led groups as a Cartwheel Art Tours host for Airbnb Open Neighborhood Explorations. The Neighborhood Explorations were curated and produced by Cartwheel Art Tours founder, Cindy Schwarzstein.
Through Michelle’s knowledge on the ever-growing public art scene of Los Angeles, she led groups on Neighborhood Explorations in Mid-Wishire, while discussing the historical developments that gave the ‘Miracle Mile’ its infamous name in the 1920’s.
On Michelle’s Neighborhood Explorations, guests checked out the iconic outdoor sculptures and installations throughout Los Angeles County Museum of Art’s courtyard and gardens, including Chris Burden’s famous light sculptures., They also stood in the same place ice age animals once lived and breathed at the La Brea Tar Pits. In addition they viewed an original segment of the Berlin Wall, and checked out the quirky Craft & Folk Art Museum, as well as admiring the shiny architectural curves of the newly renovated Peterson Automotive Museum.
The Neighborhood Explorations which offered the opportunity to take in the original art deco design of the streets and buildings on Museum Row, ended at an iconic coffee shop, which had been turned into a presidential campaign office during the 2016 elections.
