It is bordered on the north by Washington Blvd. and the south by Orange Grove Blvd. During the self-guided tour visitors will be invited to view the interiors of several homes with docent led commentaries. They will also be treated to demonstrations of restoration work, music, and refreshments. Food trucks will be on hand for those who wish to purchase lunch.

Elements, by Julie Leidel

For 2016, Arts and Crafts painter Julie Leidel has created “Elements”—a suite of four of her distinctive portrayals of earth, air, fire, and water as a unique offering commissioned for American Bungalow subscribers only.

In each issue during the year, subscribers will receive a high-quality 8" x 10" full-color lithographic reproduction, suitable for framing. The acclaimed artist’s unique gouache paintings captivate the elements in their most natural state while coupling each one with a patterned symbol to represent the timeless and regenerative nature of each element. Julie's interpretation of the meaning behind these elements brings mindfulness to our daily lives.

During the year, subscribers will receive the more collectible edition of the magazine, free of mailing and price codes, which can be purchased only through subscription.
