Dear Coachella Valley Art Scene Readers,


Hello!  And welcome back to another wild week on The Coachella Valley Art Scene.

This week, more so then many others, is one that is all about craft, craft, and more crafting for The CVAS.  This Wednesday we will be at College of the Desert crafting at their Art Student Scholarship Exhibition (along with tunes provided by Alf Alpha).  AND, come this Saturday, we will be crafting at the Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs for our “World Famous Pool Party” (also, along with Alf Alpha!).  If it’s a cool art show or a fun party in Palm Springs, better believe that Alf Alpha and The CVAS will be there.

Speaking of parties… let’s get this one started!…


This week we will be posting photos from the past AOK (Art of Kraft) art show that went down last week.  This next one coming up in June (first Thursday of the month), will be the final one from this series…. so try to make it out and see what it’s all about!  Who knows? Maybe you might end up seeing something you love and end up purchasing a piece from a local artist – and help make the world go round.  So, make sure to come back to the blog this week to check out the Pop-Up Show Recap: AOK (Art of Kraft) to see what it’s all about!  Facebook link:


Also in store, information regarding the College of the Desert’s Art Scholarship Exhibition featuring all student winners and runner-ups to the scholarships as well as special guests; The Coachella Valley Art Scene (on craft control) and Alf Alpha (on the sound control).  The opening event goes down this Wednesday evening, but will stay up for 3 months to come.  Make sure to come on out and see what the future in art has in store for us.  Facebook Link:


The World Famous Pool Party is happening this Saturday!!  Do you know how hype we are?!?!  Totally hype.  All the way hype.  Hype to the 3rd degree.  Okay, so you get the point: it’s going to be fun!  What’s better then an afternoon in Palm Springs, pool side, at the Ace Hotel, listening to Alf Alpha, and crafting with The Coachella Valley Art Scene on a Saturday afternoon – not much I tell ya.  So make sure to come on out and keep us company – I’ll be pressing buttons…not yours… buttons as in pins… as in… oh you get it!  Facebook Link:


One of my favorite things on the blog is Explorations of the Desert and this week we attempt to bring it back!  You never know what might catch our eye…so keep an eye out.


Keep an ear out for some good shows this weekend…. one of them being Ozomatli at the Date Shed this Friday.  We are stoked to see some good acts take the stage at one of our favorite music venues in the desert.  In addition to some good shows in the low desert, there is also a Reggae Festival in the Inland Empire this weekend.  We’ll be proving more details on both in just a few!


Come Sunday afternoon, if you are looking for ways to beat the heat I would advise you make your way on down to the Palm Springs Art Museum for their Free 2nd Sundays!  Yes, you read correctly, a day at the museum for free!  And yes, that means air conditioning, art, sculptures, craft, and mind-expanding experiences…. sounds like the perfect Sunday afternoon to me.


As always, keep an eye our for the unexpected… posts like, Art Shows a Go Go, and other Random posts.  And expect the expected as well with our weekly, Things 2 Do Thursday, party post.


Thanks again guys for always being patient!  Your support and viewership is important to us and no matter how busy we are on this side of the computer screen we try to find time in our week to produce some content for you.  Hope you dig it.
