*NOTE: This is a private tour offered exclusively by the LA Chapter of Women Who Whiskey.*
It’s on this urban adventure with Cartwheel Art Tours, that The Art of Whiskey with the Women Who Whiskey – LA Chapter, will be provided the exclusive opportunity to connect with makers and artists “South of Seventh,” an industrial area adjacent to the Downtown Los Angeles Arts District.
The group will be led by Cartwheel Art Tours and Magazine founder Cindy Schwarzstein, who is a resident and board member of the Arts District neighborhood council, along with Kim Ohanneson, founder of the Women Who Whiskey – LA Chapter, and The Go Go.
Viewing murals, meeting artists in their studios and a tasting at Greenbar Distillery will be some of the highlights!
More detail about the tour are as follows:
DISCOVER: Artists in their studios!
• Meet Los Angeles Arts District artist Heath Satow, who’s been designing and fabricating public art for over twenty years in his studio. His sculpture Ripple won the 2012 Americans for the Arts’ Public Art Network Award for its “innovative and creative contribution in the field of public art”, and since then he’s been exploring the theme of “reflection” as both a literal and metaphorical subject matter. He builds everything in his studio, using direct fabrication techniques that minimize material waste.
* Meet Los Angeles Arts District street artist, muralist and oil painter, LeBA. His signature style is realistic oil portraits of political and social satire, along with themes of mortality and the afterlife. He was recently featured on the Oxygen series “Street Art Throwdown”.
