In our last post we explained why President’s Day Weekend in the Coachella Valley is the premiere cultural weekend of the year.  The thousands of people coming into town are here to see and do many things, two of the most popular activities are attending Modernism Week events and the Palm Springs Fine Art Fair.
The fair may attract exhibitors and art lovers from across the world, February 14-17, but it is the local flavor that will really shine over the weekend-long event.  
Below are a list of businesses, galleries and artists who will be put on the spotlight at the Palm Springs Fine Art Fair.  
We recommend that all C.V.A.S. readers check out the events and support your fellow desert dweller.
