Fall Opening of the Desert Art Center in Palm Springs California
The Desert Art Center in Palm Springs, CA is the oldest non-profit cooperative of artists in Coachella Valley. There are over 200 members--many of whom are hanging gallery members and volunteer to keep the gallery open from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM seven days a week from October through June. DAC occupies the historic campus of Francis Stevens School and is located at 550 North Palm Canyon Drive. In addition to local artists selling their work in the two large gallery rooms, there are also classrooms for instructors who teach in all the media. Some of the proceeds from art sales are used for scholarships supporting young artists in several local high schools.
