New DAC Signage

Visitors to the Desert Art Center will be greeted by new signage that has recently been designed and installed. The colorful designs by Jen Hasselbeck reflect the various media that are taught in the center and the types of artwork that visitors will find for sale. The signs also make use of a palette of Mid-century modern colors that is generally being used for our promotions work, reflecting our local heritage.

The Desert Art Center particularly wishes to thank current and past members whose work has been featured on the signs. These include Andrew Gillespie, Paula Acosta, Terry Masters, Emilia Frasher, Valerie Milot, Corinne Sanderson, Sharon SalcidoKay Henkel, Howard Wilder, Millicent Harvey and Ron Erskine.

Please consider a donation in support of 
our outreach programs:

Art Education - the Middle School Art Program
Art Teacher support for the PS Unified School District
Art Scholarships to Senior High School Students

Any amount will be greatly appreciated!
