Palm Springs Desert Art Museum Brings Local Color

Palm-Springs-Desert-Art-Museum-300x199The Palm Springs Art Museum is a true gem of the desert community.  Located in the heart of downtown Palm Springs, the museum features a world-class collection of art, much of it donated or loaned by area residents.  With works of art from some of the world’s more respected and venerated artists such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Marc Chagall and Pablo Picasso, the Palm Springs Art Museum rivals any other major metropolitan art museum in America.

 

Current Exhibits

 

Explore the world of Pop Art in the exhibit Pop Goes the Humor, on display until October 7th.  The exhibit features art that includes images taken straight from popular culture, such as comic books, ads, product labels and television, and shows visitors how these images reflect society through satire and social commentary.  With humor, these artists are addressing the human experience – and providing entertainment for us all.

Contemporary Glass is an ongoing display that features a vast array of contemporary glass work from a wide range of artists.  Work from significant artists such as Benjamin Moore and Karen LaMonte are displayed alongside work that is inspired by the movement to integrate glass in non-traditional and conceptual ways.

Admire the work of famed sculptor Auguste Rodin in the exhibit Rodin to Now:  Modern Sculpture.  See how Rodin’s work has influenced and shaped modern sculpture and changed our way of thinking about three-dimensional art.
