The collections you’ll find along the boulevard include early California, Western, European masters, American Pop, and contemporary works. Whether you have a wall, shelf, table, or floor space that needs a focal point, you’ll likely find something ideal in Palm Desert.
Of course, the Art Walk is just part of the goings-on that are part of the expanded First Weekend Palm Desert offerings. For example, Cruise Night is part of the First Weekend fun. Classic cars will be parked on the upper level of the Gardens on El Paseo beginning at 3:15 p.m. The cruise on El Paseo starts at 4:30 and continues for an hour. The public is invited to participate or just enjoy. Cruise Night takes place on the first and third Fridays.
