Great destinations are distinguished by their culture — their art, music, theater, dance, and architecture and design. Part 3 in our nine-part series focuses on arts and culture, the common ground for all of the region’s communities. Our museums and performing arts centers, as well as events like Modernism Week, Desert X, and the Palm Springs International Film Festival, are vital to tourism and, therefore, the region’s economy. Our experts take a hard look at how the pandemic has impacted arts and culture in Greater Palm Springs — and how they are innovating for a smart, cutting-edge, and sustainable future.
