An Art Oasis in the Desert
Once the playground of movies, captains of industry and world leaders, the region has evolved into a respected art oasis in the Southern California desert with a vibrant cultural scene devoted to the visual arts. It home to an expanding major arts museum (5,000 member The Palm Springs Art Museum- our opening night beneficiary), a vibrant art gallery scene (with 20 + galleries) and a remarkably strong base of highly savvy art patrons and collectors. The region is comprised of some of the highest -income zip codes on the west coast, such as Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, and Indian Wells.
Art Palm Springs is owned by Atlanta-based Urban Expositions, which also produces Art Aspen and the Sculpture Objects Functional Art and Design (SOFA) Fair in Chicago. All art fairs are presented by galleries from around the world exhibiting modern and contemporary art in a variety of media including painting, photography, sculpture, and mixed-media.
