ArtTable SoCal invites you to experience the contemporary art of the Mojave landscape with a custom tour of Desert X 19, the second edition of the exhibition with site-specific installations across the Coachella Valley. 

We will meet at 9:30 am at the Desert X hub in the Palm Springs Ace Hotel. 

This day trip includes:

  • Comfortable transportation around desert landscape
  • An exclusive tour of selected highlights
  • A delicious lunch catered by F10
  • Access to "Desert, Why?" a three-day celebration of art and the environment from March 1–3, 2019 presented by Desert X and Palm Springs Art Museum.
  • An opportunity to connect with members and guests and Desert X staff in awe-inspiring beauty!

An impressive roster of international contemporary artists—Nancy Baker Cahill (whose studio we visited last summer!), Pia Camil, Jenny Holzer, Mary Kelly, Sterling Ruby, Kathleen Ryan, and many more—have envisioned the desert as a vast canvas upon which to create their works, under the artistic direction of Neville Wakefield with co-curators Amanda Hunt of MOCA and Matthew Hume. 

The Desert X 19 tour also coincides with "Desert, Why?" a three-day celebration of art and the environment from March 1–3, 2019 presented by Desert X and Palm Springs Art Museum. A series of performances, panels, tours and receptions will highlight both the exhibition Unsettled, currently on view at Palm Springs Art Museum, and Desert X 2019. Sunnylands Center & Gardens, a location of one of the Desert X art installations, will host a reception. The Desert Sun and Gannett Foundation have funded part of the weekend, during which there will be a panel at the Salton Sea on the impending climate crisis.

For those who wish to arrange a longer stay in the Palm Springs area to attend these additional programs, special rates are available from Desert X partner hotels:
