Tour Calendar

Welcome to the Cartwheel Art Tour Calendar, where you'll find listings of upcoming tours and a link for purchasing tickets to participate on the public tours. We have designed our tours to engage individuals and groups, whether local or visiting, in an immersive art, food and historical walking (and sometimes bus) adventure, with a focus on supporting artists and artisan businesses in the neighborhoods we explore.

Only Cartwheel Art Tours offers guests the exclusive opportunity to discover, explore, and experience art communities through the perspectives of a rotating, eclectic team of knowledgeable and passionate insiders who are deeply connected to the neighborhoods, led by Cartwheel Art founder Cindy Schwarzstein.

Neighborhoods that we are currently exploring is as follows:

Downtown Los Angeles Arts District, CA, USA: These urban tours, in addition to being immersive experiences with art on the street, galleries and in artists studios, provide an opportunity to learn about the developments occurring in one of Los Angeles’s most unique, dynamic, art-centric and rapidly changing neighborhoods, once a gritty section filled with disused warehouses, train tracks and manufacturing plants by the LA River.

This occurs through our eclectic team of knowledgeable and passionate district insiders who are deeply connected to the neighborhood. Cartwheel Art's headquarters are located here, and founder,Cindy Schwarzstein who leads the tours, serves on the board of Los Angeles River Artists and Business Association (LARABA) along with being actively involved in other community organizations and committees in the Downtown Los Angeles Arts District. Note: Most tours include a map, created by Cartwheel Art, identifying the murals, artist studios, galleries, event spaces, restaurants, bars, cafes, and other creative businesses in the vibrant Arts District.

Laguna Beach, CA., USA: These beach and canyon tours provide an opportunity to learn about Laguna Beach, a well-known art colony for plein-air artists that also includes a unique hippie and surf culture movement that is less well known to many visitors and even to locals.

Our passionate and local insiders are from Laguna Beach. Many are historians, artists and creative/specialty business owners. Our founder and director, Cindy Schwarzstein, who has been connected to the community since 1974 when her family first moved to the art colony, creates the itineraries and leads the groups.

Miami, FL., USA: Cartwheel Art Tours is partnering with Art Ambassador Tours on an exclusive and immersive art-oriented insider and intimate tour in Miami during the most exciting and important art-centric international event of the year, Miami Art Week, December 2-6. During this time, the international art world descends on the beautiful, historical city to experience the latest in contemporary art.
