Palm Desert has a very active focus on "art in public places". There are examples all over the city, including the public park, library, and El Paseo, an upscale shopping street, or "downtown". My friend, artist Maria Hunt is a docent who gives art walk tours. We did part 1 in May, and part 2 last week. Our book club met at 8:30 am to try to "beat the heat". We ended at Starbucks for a cold drink, and discussion of our books. Here are some of the fabulous art sculptures we saw:
The angle of those feet make my joints hurt!
IT doesn't move... YOU do!
Remember those painted boxes that hold the traffic light equipment? Here is one with the artist's Old English Sheepdog.
Here are two Maria painted with a desert scene.
Maria is not only a talented artist, she was a great docent! Thanks, Maria!
