Best art experiences to see around the world
From the works of the Old Masters to the best contemporary galleries, here are some of the best travel destinations for art experiences.
Art, like travel, broadens the mind, and it’s a wonderful way to explore the world. Visiting galleries and museums as part of a bespoke travel experience, both in Australia and overseas, exposes you to different and new perspectives.
RACV Visual Art Curator Ellen Wignell, who oversees the RACV Art Collection, says art experiences add context when you’re in another country. “You get to peer into a looking glass, and see what has interested people at a particular period of time, while contemporary artworks offer insight into the everyday lives of people in the here and now,” she says.
Art is a reason to hop in a car or board a plane, and expand your horizons. You can build entire domestic and international holidays around art through RACV Travel & Experiences.
