How to Choose the Right Art Destination for You


It’s no secret that I love art. In fact, I wrote a book about it! But even with all my knowledge and experience, there are still times when I find myself in a foreign city with no idea where to go for great art. And if you’re like me—or even if you’re not—then this guide is for you. Here are some quick tips on how to find the perfect art destination for your next trip:

How to Choose the Right Art Destination for You

What kind of art do you like?

You need to think about what kind of art you like. Are you into modern art? Or do you prefer historical pieces? If so, then an art fair may be the best option for your next vacation.

If not, then consider visiting an art museum or gallery near where you live. You could also go on a walking tour through one of the city’s historic neighborhoods and learn about its architecture while taking in some of its visual beauty at the same time!

How much time will you have?

How much time do you have?

The first thing to consider when choosing an art destination is how much time you’ll be spending there. If it’s just a day trip and then back home, then the options are pretty limited. However, if you’re looking for an extended stay or even relocation, then there are many options available. How long will you be staying? What is your travel itinerary? These are all important questions that need answering before deciding on where to go!

Who will be part of your group?

If you’re traveling with friends or family, you can choose a destination that fits into your group’s interests. If you’re going solo and want to meet new people, then look for an art destination that has plenty of other travelers to meet. If it’s important for you to be in a big city or small town, this will affect where you go on vacation too!

How much money can you spend?

You’ll find that the amount of money you spend on art is not necessarily indicative of how great it will be. For example, you can find amazing art for free, but you can also find expensive art that isn’t all that great. The same goes for cheap paintings and sculptures–they might not have any value at all!

So what should you do? The best thing to do is look at your budget and see if there’s anything left over after covering necessities like food, clothing and shelter (if these are covered by other means). If there isn’t enough money left over in your budget then consider finding another hobby until such time as this becomes possible again–like reading books instead of buying them or going hiking instead of buying hiking gear.

There are many choices for art destinations.

There are many choices for art destinations. The best way to choose the right one is by considering your personal interests and needs. Consider the following options:

  • Art museums, galleries and other institutions dedicated to showcasing fine arts (e.g., paintings, sculptures) or contemporary works (e.g., photography). These can be found in large cities such as New York City or Los Angeles; however, if you’re looking for something more off-the-beaten path then consider smaller towns such as Santa Fe that offer a wide range of exhibitions throughout the year.
  • Museums dedicated exclusively to one artist’s work or period of time in history (e.g., impressionism). In these cases it may be helpful if you already have an idea about what type of style interests you before visiting so that your expectations aren’t set too high – otherwise there’s no guarantee that anything will match up with what was expected!


There are many choices for art destinations. You can visit museums and galleries, go on a tour of artist studios, or even take a class in drawing or painting! The best way to choose which one is right for you is by thinking about what kind of art you like, how much time will be available for your trip, who will be part of your group (if any), and how much money can be spent on this adventure.
