“This world is but a canvas to our imagination.”               -Henry David Thoreau

From exploring galleries to museums, to attending festivals and visual arts exhibitions, art travel can fulfill and stimulate travelers on many levels.  Major cities around the world have museums housing the works of the great masters.  Cities such as Basel, Miami and Hong Kong host art fairs that draw thousands of collectors, curators and casual observers.   Even when part of a broader travel itinerary, art can energize and engage travelers in surprising and unexpected ways.
