Journeys in Art + Culture

Art Travel with Barbara Newey

Art Wise creates and manages art-centric study tours for small groups of travelers.

With a pulse on the art world, Art Wise searches for opportunities to view special exhibitions and historic architecture in Central Texas and the U.S.  We believe that our collective joy of learning, combined with engaging conversations, produces memorable experiences. 


From day trips in Texas to tours in the U.S., Art Wise provides the logistics so you can enjoy the study tours of our colleague and your guide, Art Historian, Karen Pope, PhD.

In addition to three decades of academic teaching, Karen has, since 1995 offered by popular demand, art museum day trips and art history-rich study tours through Art inSight Adventures in Art History.
