Our Expert Arts Guides will take you on a guided tour through The Santa Fe Art Colony, a hidden gem and a true enclave of art and creativity nestled in a bustling industrial area of Downtown Los Angeles!

While many people are familiar with the art galleries nestled between high-end salons and boutiques in West L.A., not as many people are familiar with the awesome creative spaces so many of the artists showing in those galleries live and work in Downtown Los Angeles. The Santa Fe Art Colony, founded in 1988, is one of those awesome places!

Your knowledgeable guide will lead you around the grounds, giving history and insight into this unique community, as well as walk you right in the front door of many of the resident artist’s lofts, giving you a chance to meet the creators, see them at work, and interact with them on an intimate level impossible at a gallery show.

The tour ends near another hidden gem, Trattoria 25 restaurant, where you can choose to relax for fine dining or just a wonderful snack. All tour guests get a discount, and our friends at Trattoria will be expecting you!

Come join us for this incredible tour of The Santa Fe Art Colony, see the art, meet the artists, hear their stories, and have a great time with us!
