The Discovery Tour Is Back!

Smaller but mighty
September 17th, 10am – 4pm


The Arroyo Arts Collective invites you to be a part of the Discovery Tour Revival 2022. The Tour is a one-day chance for art collectors, curators, journalists, art aficionados, and the simply curious, to be exposed to the talent pool that makes up our membership. Different this year, tourgoers will visit a specially selected number of locations, some of which are listed below, where artist participants will be placed. This is not an Open Studio Tour as in past years.

Presented by The Arroyo Arts Collective (AAC), in conjunction with The Autry Museum of the American West and Avenue 50.

We are also accepting submissions for any type of crafts including jewelry, textiles, assemblage, and multi-media work.
