VISION

DESERT X, AN INTERNATIONAL, CONTEMPORARY ART EXHIBITION, WILL FOCUS ATTENTION ON AND CREATE CONVERSATION ABOUT ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL, AND CULTURAL CONDITIONS OF THE 21ST CENTURY AS REFLECTED IN THE GREATER PALM SPRINGS AREA. THE COACHELLA VALLEY STRETCHES EAST AND SOUTH FROM PALM SPRINGS TO THE SALTON SEA. IT IS A DESERT ENVIRONMENT, SURROUNDED BY SOME OF THE HIGHEST PEAKS IN THE UNITED STATES. LONG A SACRED SITE AND HOME TO THE NATIVE AMERICAN TRIBE OF AGUA CALIENTE BAND OF CAHUILLA INDIANS, IT HAS BECOME KNOWN FOR TOURISM, CAMPING, HIKING AND GOLF, ITS RICH MODERN ARCHITECTURAL HISTORY, AS WELL AS FOR ENTERTAINERS AND POLITICIANS WHO HAVE ENJOYED THIS VIBRANT AREA.
