Quick Culture, was established in Beverly Hills, California in 2005, a global, art tour and cultural travel company that provides personalized Art Tours & Cultural Journeys in the Los Angeles area and beyond. Why wait in line at a museum with 30 strangers for a public tour at a museum-specific time when you can choose a Quick Culture private tour at a time and day that’s convenient for you? Why go on a cookie-cutter international journey with a behemoth travel company when Quick Culture will create a 5-star vacation that is authentic and unique?
Ellen grew up in the ‘burbs of Philly’. Her career began with fashion and interior design. When she moved to LA, it evolved into production and costume design for TV, film and theater. She’s been an instructor at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) and guest lecturer at UCLA.
Established in 2005, QUICK CULTURE was conceived to provide entertaining and informative small, custom, private art tours and unforgettable global journeys. Ellen has curated odysseys that span the world from Avignon to Zhongshan Lu for both casual travelers and seasoned explorers who are looking for stimulating, immersive experiences. You will find images and newsletters about past trips on her website HERE. Presently, Ellen is curating an art-themed journey to Japan that will include cultural and historical “don’t misses” and “must-sees” as well as special meetings with artists and art venues not ordinarily offered by cookie-cutter travel companies. It is slated for Fall of 2023.
Now that the pandemic is somewhat under control, Ellen has resumed all museum tours and has added a new tour of half-day and full-day excursions of “the best of” contemporary galleries in Los Angeles that exemplify the unique talents and élan of the Los Angeles art scene. Local museum tours are at The Getty Center, The Getty Villa, LACMA and the Norton Simon Museum — with specially-designed For Kids of All Ages children’s tours (ages 6 and up) at The Getty Center that introduce children to the elements of art in a fun way! Notables she has toured range from Judge Merrick Garland (U.S. Attorney General) to Max Getty (J. Paul Getty’s great-grandson.) Corporate accounts include Match.com, Netflix, Google and many others.
Ellen’s other website, QUICK CULTURE INSIDER is an art newspaper and online emporium of Exclusive Home Decor, Functional, and Wearable Art by emerging and established artists. As Editor and Publisher, Ellen and her fellow art detectives promise to have you amazed by the unfamiliar and make you carefully ponder and laugh out loud. Sometimes simultaneously. Her mission is for the content of Quick Culture Insider to never be boring or elitist to which she readily admits, is a big promise!
“Great Art is a fragrant, complex stew of creativity and skill. Without creativity, you can only copy; without skill, it’s locked in your mind!”—Ellen Greenberg
