For inspiration, head to the Shemer Art Center. Built in 1919 as a winter home, the mission-style house and its grounds have blossomed into an art hub. Wander the galleries inside or across the lawn, where 20-foot-high metal sculptures use the mountain as a backdrop. Like the art? Everything’s for sale, plus there’s a gift shop with everything from silk scarves to jewelry made from found objects.
