Palm Springs Is Jumping For Joy With New Public Art Project

The newly christened Palm Springs Cultural Center unveiled it’s latest public art project this weekend. The high-spirited photography of Eyoälha Baker was turned into a mural on the wall of the Cultural Center/Camelot Theatre.

The artist has been working on the “Jump For Joy” project for several years and is traveling around the world taking photos of people in joyful mid-air poses. The happiness in the photos is contagious, and the artist hopes to use public art to inspire joy on a mass scale. For the Palm Springs mural, she did a 3-month residency and photographed local residents in settings all around the city.

For more information about Eyoälha Baker and her photography, visit ,  and be sure to stop by the Palm Springs Cultural Center when you are in town. A great time to go is Saturday morning when you can also visit the Certified Farmers Market which is held in the parking lot.

Artist David Cerny’s “Crawling Babies” are coming to downtown Palm Springs

This is sure to get people talking. Artist David Cerny’s “Crawling Babies” are coming to downtown Palm Springs for a temporary exhibit. The artist is known for controversial sculptures, and these should definitely get some attention.

The exhibit is part of the ongoing downtown renovation and drive to get more public art throughout the city.

The Crawling Babies were previously part of an installation on the Zizkov TV Tower in the Czech Republic. They were so well received there that they tried to make them a permanent installation.
