Famous Bus Trips
Some of the club’s most popular events are the “Famous Bus Trips” and other excursions arranged by Peggy Carlson, Diana Hutzell, and the Board. Often scheduled after the Program Year has been planned, we put the word out on the latest trips with emails and snail mails to our members, so be sure to join!
Our destinations have ranged from special shows at LACMA (the Los Angeles County Museum of Art), the Borad, Norton Simon, Sunnylands in Rancho Mirage, San Diego’s Museum of Contemporary Art, and more. Getting there and back is part of the fun. We serve wine and hors d’oeuvres on our return home, and we always make time for lunch at unique restaurants in the area.
RSVPs and pre-payments are required, because often the trips sell out. Park at the Parking Garage on the northeast corner of E. 1st St. and Columbia in Pomona College, where the bus meets us.
Not all our excursions are by bus, however. We took a Metro and walking tour of the fantastic Public Art in the L.A. Metro Stations with the MTA’s Helen Ortiz-Gilstrap, and we often carpool to local destinations such as AMOCA (the American Museum of Ceramic Art) in Pomona, and the Maloof Studios and Art Gardens in Rancho Cucamonga.
