ART TREASURES IN FLORIDA, THE SUNSHINE STATE

February 24-29, 2020

Price TBD

Florida is quickly becoming a major art mecca. Escape the winter cold with us on an art adventure beginning in Miami and traveling by motor coach along the West Coast to ST. Petersburg. We’ll start in Miami with visits to two knock-you-socks-off major collections of contemporary and find out how and why the city has become such an important art destination. Miami is known as a second Cuba, and we are thrilled to be visiting the studios of renowned Cuban artists who now reside in the USA. We’ll also explore the Wynwood District, perhaps the largest and most exciting outdoor mural center in North America. Once in Naples, we’ll tour the gorgeous and newly-renovated Baker Art Museum. After traveling north to St. Pete-Clearwater, we’ll explore Salvador Dali’s extraordinary imagination in his eponymous museum and experience Florida light in Dale Chihuly’s thrilling permanent collection. In addition to art, we will enjoy great food and inspiring coastal views.
