Modernism Week in Palm Springs ended last weekend and Desert X began. I was lucky to hear 3 lectures at the PS Art Museum, during the first weekend of Modernism and visited ART PALM SPRINGS, February 16-19, 2017 at the Palm Springs Convention Center. DesertX is now on my calendar as a must see event. Museum quality artists like Los Angeles artist Lita Albuquerque and Jeffrey Gibson, Phillip K. Smith III and Rob Pruitt and with Artistic Director Neville Wakefield, I am convinced this will be an unforgettable experience. DesertX is a free contemporary art show that spans about 45 miles of the Coachella Valley. There will be indoor and outdoor pieces staged on public and private lands. Start at the Ace Hotel and get a map for a self-guided tour. The art is intentionally not clustered together. Februrary 25 - Saturday April 30. Info: desertx.org.
