We invite you to experience the Arts Council’s ARTours–arts-oriented trips designed to enrich your appreciation of familiar places and expand your knowledge of remote locations. Enjoy special museum visits, attend acclaimed musical and theatrical performances, visit artists’ homes and studios, and enjoy points of cultural interest and unique experiences as you share the companionship of fellow Arts Council members.

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” ~ Saint Augustine
