Welcome to the Cartwheel Art Tour Calendar, where you'll find listings of upcoming tours and a link for purchasing tickets to participate in the public tours we have designed to engage individuals and groups--whether local or visiting--as an immersive urban art, food, and historical walking adventure in the Downtown Los Angeles Arts District.
Only on a Cartwheel Art Tour will guests discover, explore, and experience the most dynamic art-centric and rapidly changing part of Los Angeles, once a gritty section filled with disused warehouses, train tracks and manufacturing plants by the LA River and now one of the most desirable emerging neighborhoods in the greater Los Angeles area.
Led by Cartwheel Art founder Cindy Schwarzstein and a rotating, eclectic team of knowledgeable and passionate insiders from the District (see link here).Cindy and our "insider" guest speakers are deeply connected to the history, art, food, and new developments occurring in the neighborhood (events which may not even be in the news yet), and so much more.
Note: Unless otherwise stated, Cartwheel Art tours support a non-profit group, which changes quarterly, with a portion of proceeds from the ticket price donated to the designated non-profit. Our current beneficiary for the North End Tour is Art Share LA.
