The Irvine Museum is dedicated to the preservation and display of California art of the Impressionist Period (1890-1930). It is known for its broad collection of plein air paintings. This summer there will also be a special exhibit, "Passionate Visions: Paintings by Botke, DeRome, Rider, and Wendt". These artists painted in California and include paintings of birds, the California coastline, and the missions. For more information, see

The Vesceras live right on the Upper Newport Bay Ecological Preserve. After lunch, those who would like to walk along the bay are welcome to stay.
