Get Away From It All
Welcome to the travel issue of Artful Living. From coverage of the art of packing to “glamping,” we intend to inspire you to take a trip or just dream about what it might be like to transport yourself to another place.
Don’t miss our feature by Rudy Maxa, “A Colorful Life,” the story of LeRoy Neiman. It’s an interesting read about his rise from a broken St. Paul home to become one of America’s most prosperous artists.
Our original content is proudly created by a brilliant group of contributors and editors. Every issue is packed with a unique collection of interesting articles about home, fashion, food, travel and real estate.

In the craziness of our daily routine, the influences of our family, friends and jobs are gradually entrenched into our beliefs and opinions — perhaps to the point of altering the person we think we might want to be. One way to get a clear view is to get away from it all. It’s the separation from our homes, obligations and expectations that allows us to renew, gain perspective and turn back on a happier course.
