We visited the Palm Springs and Palm Desert area during the week of Memorial Day and fit in a quick trip through the Palm Springs Art Museum. The following are a few pieces that caught my eye.
This piece is Bees Knees by John Chamberlain from 1988 made from painted and chromium-plated steel. The light bounced off the sculpture from every angle.
This is the back view from above of Bees Knees.
There was a contemporary glass exhibition, and this was the first of two interesting blown glass Chihuly pieces.
A second Dale Chihuly piece, this one is Basket Set with Black Lip Wrap from 1986.
This spider sculpture which is a bronze by Louise Bourgeois had great presence.
Henry Moore’s Helmet Head No. 2 is another bronze. This one was cast in 1955.
Roy Lichtenstein’s The Prisoner is from 1980.
I appreciated the abstract nature of this acrylic on canvas picture by Dan Namingha, Song of Rain, from 1991.
