I'm not a huge fan of Modern Art. But, it was great to get out of the heat, and learn a little something.

“Wonderful and diverse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

Loved the main floor the best but all the art work is unique do not miss the outside garden areas. I loves the glass display was unique. Surprises on the third floor. Thursday nite is free from 4-8 pm but minimal fee is worth it. Many fine pieces donated by local residents of Palm Spring

“great art”

the gallery was free to get in, usually on Tuesday night. Some of the art was amazing. The gift shop was nice but a bit expensive.
