Art lovers and the culturally curious are invited to participate in a free guided walking tour of the El Paseo Invitational Exhibition on Saturday, April 5.
Anyone interested in an up-close and informative look at highlighted sculptures of the 2013/2014 Exhibition can meet the tour guide at the northwest corner of El Paseo and Portola Avenue at 9 a.m.
The 18-sculpture exhibition includes works from local Coachella Valley artists as well sculptures created by international artists from Canada and Israel. One of the pieces – “Handstand” – was created by actor Daniel Stern, who starred in City Slickers, Diner, and Home Alone and was the voice on the Wonder Years.
Held on selected Saturdays each month, September through May, as part of First Weekend Palm Desert, the City’s free, one-hour docent-guided tours provide interesting facts and insight into Palm Desert’s renowned public art collection. Reservations are not required. Wear comfortable shoes and come prepared to have fun and to learn.
