Looking for something to do this weekend or Valentines Day? Check out the Palm Springs Fine Art Fair!

For four nights and three days, February 14-17, the art world will descend upon Palm Springs for a winter getaway highlighted by blue chip post war and cutting edge contemporary art from more than 50 galleries at the Palm Springs Fine Art Fair.

A special program of invited installations and performances alongside some marquee sculptural works on view from participating exhibitors, the Palm Springs Fine Art Fair is a prime destination for high-concept, high-end sculpture.

Edible Art
A special program of art installations and performances will dot the fair throughout the weekend, beginning with an opening night edible art installation by local artist Lisa Provenza-Bebar. The piece, Cookie, Be My Valentine, literally satiates a ravenous desert art market as it pays tribute to the sugary sweet work of Pop-Art pioneer Mel Ramos.

Los Angeles Art Association Curates Interactive Art
Returning for its second year, the Los Angeles Art Association curates an interactive piece titled Infinity from Shana Mabari. Noting how the organization’s involvement at the fair is vital to its mission of developing emerging artists, Executive Director Peter Mays states, “Los Angeles Art Association is proud to feature Shana Mabari’s compelling spatial explorations with her installation at the 2013 Palm Springs Fine Art Fair.” Consisting of multi-colored mirrors, the highly interactive Infinity is described by Mabari as, “a multi-dimensional space that combines reflective and colored surfaces to create a distinctive experience.  It provides a prism through which to view oneself and various aspects of reality.”
