Cartwheel Art, based in the Downtown Los Angeles Arts District, specializes in designing immersive and custom experiences for groups of any size. 

  • Tour the murals of DTLA while learning the stories behind them. 
  • Visit professional artists in their studios and talk to them about their work.
  • Get creative at a hands-on workshop with a local street artist or graffiti artist.
  • Descend beneath the streets to visit the hidden tunnels and speakeasies used during Prohibition.

In addition to creating memorable tours and personalized art encounters, Cartwheel Art curates pop-up art shows and produces community art events. Founder Cindy Schwarzstein has provided cultural programming in the L.A. area for more than twenty-five years. In May 2017, the City of Los Angeles awarded her a certificate of recognition for her “exemplary commitment and outstanding service,” and in September 2017, an Aspire Magazine cover story named her one of the top six community leaders of Downtown Los Angeles, describing her as a “savvy insider.”
