Fowler Museum at UCLA’s current exhibit, India’s Subterranean Stepwells: Photographs by Victoria Lautman, features 48 images of India’s “manmade water storage systems called stepwells,” built between the 9th and 18th centuries. In conjunction with the display, the museum hosts Global Dining: Northern India in Artesia, a chance for visitors to learn about Indian culture beyond art that includes a trip to Rajdhani, a vegetarian restaurant in Artesia’s Little India enclave that specializes in thali-style cuisine, which consists of several small, all-you-can-eat dishes served on a steel platter and filled with rice, vegetables, chutney, lentil soup, flatbread and rose-flavored ice cream. Following the meal, you can explore the other restaurants, grocery stores and shops that run through the neighborhood’s Pioneer Boulevard. Fowler Museum at UCLA, 308 Charles E. Young Drive, Westwood; Sat., Aug. 10, departs at noon; $60. (310) 825-4361,
