n terms of “public” art spaces, bathrooms are traditionally overlooked, a missed opportunity for an artist and the public to have a shared experience. By offering this blank three-dimensional canvas our goal is to give the artist the opportunity for creative expression while we and the public at large get the opportunity to think differently about a space that is traditionally thought of as a solely utilitarian.Read More
Frank Sinatra, aka “Mr. Palm Springs,” called the desert his home for more than 50 years. The Chairman of the Board and his Rat Pack buddies lived, loved and partied pretty hard here from the mid 40’s to late 1990’s. He has left imprints on the Palm Springs community that are still visible today.Read More
APRIL, 2019 LINE-UP
Tachevah 2015 was a HUGE success! Here are a selection of my favorite images from the performances of Caxton, Alchemy and Little Red Spiders! I had friends flying into town so I wasn't able to catch Jungle or Kimbra unfortunately, but my main goal was to attend and support our local bands who totally rocked it! There was such a great turnout, not to mention the icy cold beverages served up by Heineken and delicious food from food trucks and I may or may not have indulged in an extremely large lemonade icee AND french fries! :) Many many huge thank you's to the Desert Sun, Golden Voice, the City of Palm Springs, the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians, Harold Matzner and PS Resorts for making the event possible! I am already looking forward to next year! xo sarah

What.a.weekend. Coachella seriously rocked my world, and the world's of thousands of other music lovers from around the globe. There was so many amazing musicians in this year's lineup, but for me it was all about; Hozier, The Weeknd, Florence and the Machine, Kiesza, Lykke Li, George Ezra, Kaskade and well the list could literally go on and on. As much as Coachella was exhausting, it was also incredibly reinvigorating for me, there is something magical about dancing under the stars with your best friends, singing the lyrics of your favorite songs with thousands of other people that goes right to your soul. It is the perfect opportunity to get in touch with your inner spirit animal and don your favorite hippie boho attire.
I couldn't bring my real camera in so I had to settle for my iphone all weekend, which in and of itself was a liberating experience. Above are a few of my favorites, including the iconic Coachella ferris wheel, some of the great art installations they had on the grounds and the beautiful caterpillar that turned into a butterfly over the course of the weekend. Coachella is seriously an experience for the eyes, ears, heart and soul, and I cannot wait to go back next year! My best piece of advice, take Monday off.
Now that the pure madness of Coachella is over, up next is Stage Coach! The country version of Coachella held on the same grounds this upcoming weekend. Although I'm not attending, I will do my best to cover some of the fun! Keep an eye out for pictures from last week's Tachevah 2015 as well! It was a super fun event in town and I was stoked to see our local bands rock the stage! Don't forget about the rest of April's events in PS, which you can read about here!
I will leave you with this glorious masterpiece, one of my absolute favorite performances from the weekend, and a truly beautiful song.
I've seen an explosion of all things Coachella on the interwebs already and I'm beginning to experience a serious case of FOMO! One of my favorite parts of the festival is checking out all of the amazing boho chic fashion. It is center stage for some of the industry's hottest fashionistas including Alexa Chung, pictured here at our very own Saguaro PS, and celebrities like Kendall Jenner and model Gigi Hadid who is rocking the desert glam with her hunk of boyfriend Cody Simpson. I'll be posting Coachella related pieces all week so keep an eye out if you aren't able to attend yourself this year! Don't forget here in town you can also check out Tachevah Fest this Wednesday! The doors open at 5 and you can find out more information here! It's a great way to experience the Coachella madness without the madness! xo sarah
