Palm Springs has a lot to offer besides the desert, the cool hotels like the Riviera Resort & Spa or the Ace Hotel, movie star homes and art. That’s why in spite of the almost unbearable summer heat, I keep coming back.
The Public Art in Palm Springs map lists 60, mostly large scale sculptures, scattered all over the city. There are more contemporary pieces not listed that I was able to photograph, and are worth checking out as well.
Unfortunately, I missed J.Seward Johnson‘s “Forever Marilyn”, who frequented Palm Springs during her short life. So instead, here’s a musical scene from the movie “Let’s Make Love”, starring Marilyn Monroe singing “My Heart Belongs to Daddy”.
A cool music video to end this series, simply using flowers in the artist’s bedroom, a camera, soundtract and time. Thanks for viewing and I greatly appreciate your comments.
PS> I have requested experts to help me identify the plants featured in this series, and will update them soon for your reference. Thanks Sam, CJ and Ren. Cheers!
One of my favorite forms of escape. Homemade pizza in Tuscany (or any peaceful backyard) with freshly picked tomatoes and basil, while listening to the first best summer tune of the year, Empire of The Sun: Alive. Hope you had your escape yet, we all need it.
