Coachella Valley Art Scene promotes local talent and events
When Sarah Scheideman graduated from college and returned to the Coachella Valley, she sought — but never found — a source for news and information about local art and music events in the area.
So she started the Coachella Valley Art Scene, and five years later, the website and blog has expanded its coverage, opened a storefront art gallery, and seen its signature event, the monthly World Famous dance party, has become a local favorite.
With about 10,000 monthly blog readers, 10,000 “likes” on Facebook, and 5,000 followers on Instagram and Twitter, the grassroots arts hub has become the go-to destination for information about film screenings, art exhibitions, yoga, live music, and festivals, as well as a champion of local talent. Scheideman updates the site and blog daily.
