With AtravesARTE you become like family

"I can not thank you enough for the insight, generosity, knowledge and deep care that you showed us in Mexico. It was an incredible experience for all of us. What can I say? You guys rock! Gracias con todo mi corazón”

The art experience you kindly gave me will truly remain one of the most memorable days of my life. I hope to visit another time in the near future. I'm so delighted to know ArtavesArte.

Coming to Mexico City for the first time was an intimidating prospect. Not only were we attending a large international art fair, but in one of the largest cities in the Hemisphere....and I didn't speak Spanish. Leslie and Tanya made sure it was one of the best trips I've ever had in my life. There are three reasons for this: Local Knowledge, Local Access, and Baddassitude. They set the bar so high for what a local guide/fixer should accomplish, I fear it will never be met again. The end result was an incredible experience that propelled me into the world of Modern Art and made me fall in love with Mexico City. I met incredible local artists, sang with mariachi's until I cried and truley saw another side of one of the most dynamic cities in the word. I cannot wait to go back and cannot encourage my friends enough to use their service !”

Your attention to the scope and depth of the contours of contemporary art in Mexico City was deeply enriching and demystifying. I was especially impressed with how personal your approach was, to both the city and its artists. It was unique to many other studio visits I have experienced in this regard and ultimately made the whole week special!

Contemporary art comes to life with behind the scenes visits

I have been thinking about you every day since I returned. Thank you so much for the best experience ever! So much to process. Life changing for me anyway. I can’t express enough appreciation I am in love. Want to cry thinking about it all. So good you are together doing this. My former students and friends want to go. Must be a way to continue spreading this fabulous knowledge.

“We traveled to Mexico City to experience both the city and the art fairs with Atravesarte. It was truly one of the best trips we have ever taken. Leslie and Tanya had thought of and taken care of everything. Through them we were able to meet multiple artists and see their studios, which gave an insight into the artists’ practice unlike anything you can get from just seeing their work. We were able to see and experience parts of the Mexico City that perhaps we would have never even known to go because of their thoughtful planning. One of the biggest highlights was singing with the mariachis at Garibaldi Square – an experience like none other! It is impossible to recommend Atravesarte enough. Leslie and Tanya will make you feel right at home…the home of a VIP,” /art collector/

I just had coffee with Kristen. She glowed when she shared the experiences around the city you facilitated for her and her family. It was so wonderful to be able to hear a first-hand story like hers.  You two are really wonderful!
