Join the Museum Docent Council on a triple header bus trip to three Los Angeles arts and culture destinations. The bus will leave the Old Naval Hospital at 8:00 a.m., pick-up at La Costa Park-and-Ride at 8:30 a.m., and return at 7:00 p.m.. Contact Bethany Burke or call 619.696.1962 for tickets.
First Stop: Start your trip with an educator-led private tour of permanent collection highlights at The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles—home to one of the country's finest collections of American and European art created since 1940.
Second Stop: Take a self-guided audio tour of the Walt Disney Concert Hall, an internationally recognized architectural monument designed by architect Frank Gehry. Narrated by Emmy and Tony Award-winning actor John Lithgow, this tour provides insights from architect Frank Gehry and other key contributors. Enjoy lunch on your own in the architecturally distinct Concert Hall Cafe, and enjoy views of this acoustically and visually sophisticated space.
Third Stop: The Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, standing in the midst of downtown Los Angeles, serves the total Archdiocese of more than 5 million Catholics. As the heart of all 287 parish churches and communities, it is the place where the Archbishop celebrates the major liturgies of the year. The Cathedral serves as a "model church for all parish churches" in the style and contact of its liturgical celebrations. In design, art, and furnishings, the Cathedral is rich in cultural diversity in a city in which Sunday Mass is celebrated in 42 different languages.
