Tour travels to two exhibits

The Riford Center will sponsor a four-hour trip by chartered bus to The Mingei Museum in Escondido to view the exhibit “Rite and Ritual, Ceremonial Art Across Cultures.” The trip will also include a visit to Queen Califia’s Magical Circle, the only American sculpture garden by the artist Niki de Saint Phalle, who once lived in La Jolla.

The tour will depart from the Riford, 6811 La Jolla Blvd., at 1 p.m. on May 20. Reservations must be made by May 13 by calling (858) 459-0831. The cost is $20 or $10 for Riford Center members.

The Mingei museum’s branch in Escondido will close its doors in June.
