MUSEUM COLOR

These are some iPhone shots I took at the Palm Springs Art Museum on a recent visit. All are from the gift shop...

For me life is all about color (among other things)...

Such a fun day...color--- makes the world (or top) go round.

UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL AT THE MUSEUM

My friend Janice suggested we take in the Palm Springs Art Museum while the boys golfed- I jumped at the chance...

The place was prepping for their annual gala fundraiser ($750 a seat)...pretty in pink? Even the stairs heading to the gala were Barbie pink...a bit over the top for me, but I suppose if I were to attend (ca-ching) I'd go all out and wear bright pink too- hell, why not...


35 tables of 10 @$750 a table- you do the math...


This post is about the art I saw (and caught on 'film' with my iphone)- there will be another post about the gift shop later...

So on our free visit to the museum- this what what we saw...this exhibit was all about the swimming pools of the desert, Hollywood, & LA, and the celebrities...didn't really to a whole lot for me, but I went with it anyway...a lot of Muscle Beach shots, as well as PS pools and the like- a short film featuring Ester Williams of swimming fame- learned she owned a pool building company in the Cali desert.



Apparently David Hockney did lots of this that is pool related...

Also watched a strange slide show involving lots of shots of people we didn't know enjoying their pools- odd indeedy.




And onto the exciting stuff...I'm not going to explain any of this- just enjoy and come to your own conclusions...



























And THAT was my museum visit---thanks for perusing (and special thanks to Janice for the invite)
