Memorial Day/Weekend in the desert never looked so….. artsy!


Memorial Day is to honor those who we have lost, and I believe it is also to honor the gift we have been given which is.. the gift of life.  So, in honor of those lost and those with the opportunity to be here… The Coachella Valley Art Scene is celebrating the art/beauty of the human connection.

The human connection can be celebrated over art, over a few drinks, and poolside in Palm Springs…. with the Coachella Valley Art Scene.  Human connections are created through making art together, dancing together and by coming together under one roof to support good people doing good things (like the AIDS/Lifecycle and the Silent Art Auction).
