The Palm Springs Art Museum

Last Tuesday, the husband and I braved the 122 degree heat and ventured out into the Coachella Valley and landed upon the Palm Springs Art Museum and were happily greeted with a burst of frigid air and smiling faces as we walked through the doors. What a gorgeous space this museum is. There are four levels of amazing works of art, sculptures, digital installations, and an audio/visual blown glass exhibition that was beautiful but admittedly evoked a strange feeling while experiencing it. The museum, on a whole, was so relaxing to walk through. One of my favorite galleries was near the front filled with works by Van Gogh, Thiebaud, Joan Mitchell, Rothko and so many more but didn’t allow photos. I can only imagine the works in that particular area were the most expensive and that was the reasoning? Nevertheless, we wandered around the quiet but vast space for at least an hour pointing and oohing and awing and trying to guess the artists of the works without sounding like snobby-smug-art-snobs, though I’m not sure we succeeded 😉

    So glad you enjoyed the museum visit. I love that Louise Bourgeois!

    I’m not a rights and repros expert, but I’ve worked in museums for a decade+ (not PSAM) and there are lots of reasons a gallery might be off-limits to photography of any kind (and not just flash, which you probably know can be damaging). It’s possible the works in that gallery are on long-term loan and the lender/owner stipulated that photography is forbidden. It’s also possible that some sort of intellectual property rights protect the work from even a humble amateur snapshot (and your skill with a camera goes well beyond that). Just FYI, in case it’s interesting to you 🙂

    You know, of all the times I’ve gone to Palm Springs, I’ve never known there was a museum. This is awesome! I’ll have to check it out sometime. I think we just plain never left the resort because it was always too hot to.
