Basin Cultural Arts Council, Inc.
October 27-November 5, 2006
The Open Studio Art Tours is the Morongo Basin Cultural
Arts Councilís largest annual event showcasing artists from the communities of
Morongo Valley, Yucca Valley, Pioneertown, Landers, Joshua Tree, Twentynine
Palms and Wonder Valley. The event provides the public with the opportunity to
go on a self-guided tour to more than 90 artistsí studios for a unique look at
their work and creative spaces, where an artistsí environment is often as
interesting as the art itself.
During the two weekend event, October 28-29 and November 4-5 from 9am - 5 pm, take dusty trails to hidden treasures for a chance to purchase work directly from artists. Enjoy breathtaking vistas of the Mojave Desert, home of the Joshua Tree. And donít miss the opportunity to mingle with the single most peculiar oddity of the desert, its denizens. The Gathering of Artists Opening Celebration, Friday, October 27th from 6-8pm at the Institute of Mentalphysics in Joshua Tree, is a great occasion to meet participating artists - know which studios are not to be missed.
Plan to stay the weekend at one of the many vintage motels in the area to soak up the sun and the local scene. During the complete 10-day run, Morongo Basin galleries, cafes, music and theatre venues expand the celebration of the arts, holding exhibitions and performances that highlight the diverse talent thriving in our community.
A schedule of events will be available in the Open Studio Art Tours program which will also include a color photo of each participating artistsí work, complete with a detailed map and driving directions. Pick up a free program at the Morongo Hardware & General Store in Morongo Valley, the California Welcome Center and Chamber of Commerce in Yucca Valley, and the Joshua Tree and 29 Palms Chambers of Commerce.
In addition, the program will be published on-line in
the Morongo Basin Cultural Arts Council's website,
