Exhibition

Desert X

So I find myself traveling down the I-10 freeway in route of the desert...right, not the most ideal location to start spring break. In fact most people don't travel this way unless it's for Coachella or the Cabazon outlets. However I was headed there with one of my best friends Jamil in search of art. The weather for sure made the trip a little easier to manage seeing as how it's the desert. Aside from the gusty winds, it was a smooth 78 degrees with big puffy clouds that would later offer a beautiful sunset. My perspective on the desert has now changed, oh and shoutout to Marshall's for coming in clutch with the last minute suitcase! (off topic, but you'll see why soon lol).

Desert X is a desert exhibition located on various sites around Coachella Valley. Each project is site-specific and well worth the commute to view each one. Due to time and such short notice, I was only able to view and photograph 3 of the 16 pieces Desert X has to offer. Possibly a little bias but I think I picked the top 3 to check out, haha. If you find some time to travel, I would definitely recommend this location; it is FREE of charge and offers a variety of art that will help tap in to your creative side. I hope you enjoy the pictures and maybe want to take a visit to Coachella Valley, the exhibition is open until April 30th!
