“Efren is a wonderful and extremely knowledgeable guide who makes art come to life. I can’t tell you how much I enjoyed our tour of the Hockney exhibition at the Met”
“Your explanation of the galleries was wonderful. When I come back to New York I would like to have you guide me again”

“Efren Olivares is a highly knowledgable art historian. His passion and knowledge shines and his lectures and walks are informative and engaging. I would highly recommend attending his tours and salons.”
“I attended Efren’s recent lecture on Contemporary Photography. He manages to keep an audience fully engaged during a lecture given his knowledge and passion about his topic. The content and structure of his talks are well thought-out and enable audiences to relate personally to what he is discussing. I look forward to future lectures.”
“In a short time I learned a lot about contemporary art from Efren, someone who really knows this area. I had some fun in the process. I expect to return to other events to learn more.”
