Past Itineraries

2016 LAAAb's International Art Trip to Cuba

Those who traveled with LAAAb’s international trip to Cuba discovered the culture, a land frozen in time yet possessing a vibrant art, music, cultural and intellectual life set in a time warp. There were exclusive access to artists studios, a guided tour of the Museum of Fine Arts, special dinners at private homes.and attended the International Ballet.

On Wednesday, December 7, 2016 we visited two very special photo-based artists. The studio of James R. Lane to see his unique photo-based "paintings" on yupo paper.

then to the studio of Nancy Baron, celebrated photographer/author of Palm Springs: The Good Life.
