art trips & visiting artists

Swinehart, Nicole, Jillian, Derek and I had a brainstorm & beer session at the Candlelight yesterday afternoon that resulted in these lists. Everyone is welcome to do some research so when the discussion does arise, we can enter it informed.

Mexico City: Cross-culture, galleries, museums
LA: Museums, galleries, the counterpart to NY
San Francisco: Has become a a diverse art scene and excellent museums. We could work it out to go for First Thursday (SF) and First Friday (Oakland), plus visit San Jose, Napa, etc.
London: Expensive, but fab..
Montreal: Feels like Europe, interesting snowstorms, tons of artist run spaces
Vancouver: Artist run spaces, West Coast Photography
Detroit: No one will go for this, but there are tons of interesting DIY projects going on, mostly involved with reclaiming the city
Minneapolis: Walker, galleries
Boston & Mass Moca: Also doubtful, but Mass Moca has been cited as a favorite among us
