Diana Maglaque

Owner

Diane is the producer of Street Art Museum Tours. Both of her parents are artists and introduced her to the arts at a young age. Her mission is to reach out to local and far away communities to show them that art museums can be both entertaining and informative in a way that both the common person and the savvy art enthusiasts can both enjoy. She strives for all tours to include elements of history, art history, and cultural elements.
