Experience The Coachella Valley Like Never Before At This Art Festival

There’s mystery to the desert. It’s so alien, so empty, so unruffled—and that’s exactly what makes it so keen for an art festival. With endless space and a strange sense of vast void, how could it not play as the perfect blank canvas for experimental minds? Such was the thought process behind Desert X.

The inland desert oases of Southern California make for the perfect showcase venue of contemporary artists. Palm Springs puts out the welcome mat and provides the charm, while the surrounding Coachella Valley operates as host for Desert X’s curated exhibition of site-specific work. The ongoing festival is scattered throughout town and valley, so it has all the makings of an assumedly more cultured scavenger hunt. While Desert X first opened its arms in February, it’s still going strong. In fact, the art festival doesn’t close up shop until the end of April. The installations are free to behold and there's no ticket necessary. However, your best stop to kicking off the artsy adventure is the Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs. There, you can score a catalog and a map, along with the festival's merchandise and the artists' books.
