Kevin Flint led his first behind-the-scenes art tour in 2007. He began by assembling a small group of interested visitors at his own loft in the Brewery Arts Complex: a 13-building haven for creative individuals that is home to more than 500 artists. Kevin decided to give the group a new experience by leading them into the studio spaces where his close friends worked on their pieces—a plan that allowed visitors to interact and engage with the artists, and to exploring areas that would normally be overlooked by more traditional art walks.
Kevin's learned a lot since then—for instance, he now lets his friends know ahead of time that he's bringing a group of strangers into their studios—but his
goal is still to provide small groups with the opportunity to see some lesser-known sides of the southern California art community. Today, he and the other guides at LA Art Tours continue to lead excursions through a handful of the Brewery Arts Complex's 330 studio spaces, but also chart course to other artistic locations around town. Tours might take visitors on a treasure hunt through the Downtown Arts District, offering some insight into the massive murals and graffiti masterpieces that often spring up overnight, only to be painted or wallpapered over in a matter of days.
Or, they might cover the famous Santa Fe Art Colony where guests may get a chance to view artists at work and glance at pieces before they make their way into the gallery.
A giant forest stretches across most of California—but its impossible to hike there. Submerged just off of the state's rocky coast, large kelp forests make a home to diverse animal and plant life. Moray eels, leopard sharks, and giant sea bass all swim beneath the water, while sea otters splash at the surface. That's just one of the habitats on display inside the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium.
The 21,000-square-foot aquarium showcases Southern California's rich marine life, making it the largest aquarium of its kind in the world. The Susanne Lawrenz-Miller Exhibit Hall charts a journey through different regions, from the open ocean, to the mudflats, to the sandy shores. Other areas present a more immersive experience. The tide pool lets visitors touch a starfish, while the exploration center gives them a worm's-eye view of organisms that live in the mud. The aquarium is also situated right next to Cabrillo Beach, where guests can see animals in their natural habitat.
Cabrillo Marine Aquarium wants to keep all of these creatures around for the long term. Case and point: the aquarium houses a research library and an aquatic nursery, where the team raises young sea animals and trains young scientists.
Ripley’s has enthralled audiences for more than nine decades with its dedication to revealing odd and unexplainable rarities from around the globe. It all began with one man: Robert Ripley, a wildly successful and eccentric character who rose to fame during the first half of the 20th century. After selling his first cartoon to Life magazine at age 14, he set out on a quick-paced career of drawing sports cartoons for the New York Globe. During a slow day at the office, he sketched nine unusual sporting events and finished his work with a title: “Believe It or Not!” It became immensely popular, allowing Ripley to travel the world in search of more bizarre stories to put into his comic strips. While visiting relatively unknown areas in locales such as India, China, and the inside of his neighbor’s chimney, he picked up a slew of unbelievable souvenirs that later became fixtures in several of Ripley’s museums, or as they’re affectionately called today, Odditoriums. Ripley’s now encompasses publications, attractions, a television show, and a blog, all of which carry Ripley’s tradition of reporting on the world’s curiosities.
