The Palm Springs Art Museum Is Free On Thursday Nights

Palm Springs may be a small town, but our art museum is world class. The building was designed in 1974 by acclaimed mid-century architect E. Stewart Williams and it is stunning. Inside you will find major collections of modern and contemporary art, glass, photography, architecture and design and Native American and Western art. There are two outdoor sculpture gardens, a café, and a museum store that includes one-of-a-kind gifts and art-related merchandise. The museum has exhibited art by such notables as Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Ansel Adams, Roy Lichtenstein, and Marc Chagall. Check the website for current exhibitions.

Beat the heat and enjoy a cool afternoon perusing some amazing art, all for free. You can go across the street and buy some ice cream with all the money you saved!

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.
