The Arroyo Arts Collective, a grassroots community artists’ organization in Northeast Los Angeles, presents “Now is the Time for the 15th Annual Discovery Tour” – a self-guided auto tour of artists’ homes and studios in Highland Park, Eagle Rock and Mount Washington. This year, the theme of the Tour is time – on Sunday, November 18, Tour goers are invited to stop clockwatching and have a good time visiting artists’ homes and studios. They will have the opportunity to discover work by over 70 local artists, featuring such diverse work as paintings, sculptures, ceramics, collage, computer graphics, screen printed clothing, photography, letterpress, printmaking, fiber arts and spray can art. View the homes and studios of real live artists! Where else can you see a woman blacksmith, the fabulous Chicken Boy and an interactive sound and visual performance on the same day? In time for the holidays, artist-made clocks will also be available for sale at the Lummis Home.
