Into The Desert
My bestie Airen is getting hitched this weekend! She has been one of my go-to girls for a long time. Seeing her this happy as she marries a great man makes my heart genuinely smile.
In true Airen fashion, she is having a very intimate ceremony outside of Palm Springs. My hubby, Jeffrey and I will be traveling to the beautiful California desert to see Airen and her man tie the knot. Palm Springs has always been one of our favorite weekend getaway locations. It organically gives off this positive energy that immediately makes us feel calm. We are also big supporters of other designers, which got us excited about the Desert X installation. Yes, this exhibit opened in the Coachella Valley many months back, and featured a collection of site-specific art pieces installed in the desert landscape. However, the public viewing stopped this past Spring - boo!
But, the good news is that it will be returning from February 9th - April 21, 2019. That seems like a long ways away, but people from around the world are already signing up!
Here are a few pics from the last Desert X installation - it features pieces by huge names in contemporary art including Doug Aitken, Lita Albuquerque, Jennifer Bolande, Will Boone, Claudia Comte, Jeffrey Gibson, Sherin Guirguis, Norma Jeane, Glenn Kaino, Gabriel Kuri, Armando Lerma, Richard Prince, Rob Pruitt, Julião Sarmento, Phillip K. Smith III and Tavares Strachan.
