An exciting new art project of the Desert Biennial, a nonprofit steering committee and charitable organization that promotes art and the local environment, will pop up in California's Coachella Valley this month.

Desert X, from Feb. 25 to April 30, 2017, will populate indoor and outdoor locations across the valley and its striking desert landscape with 18 site-specific works by established and emerging artists. Projects "will amplify and articulate global and local issues that may range from climate change to starry skies from tribal culture and immigration to tourism, gaming and golf," says the project's website.

Steven Nash, former executive director of the Palm Spring Art Museum, and Beth Rudin DeWoody, art collector and president of the Rudin Family Foundations, are two of the luminaries behind the project. Neville Wakefield is the artisitic director.

Desert X will stretch across locations within the 45 miles between the San Bernardino Mountains and the Salton Sea, a few hours drive east of Los Angeles.

The exhibit is free. Docent-led Desert X Opening Week tickets are now available for a Saturday 2/25 bus tour. Info: https://www.desertx.org/news/
