WELCOME TO THE DESERT ART CENTER
Dec 6, 2016
By Anna JapengaI would have told you I know Tahquitz Canyon well. I’ve studied the jagged mouth from my backyard for 21 years. I’ve watched the shadow of the witch glide across the canyon in the mornings and have even trekked to the third waterfall to visit a former hermit-in-residence. So I thought I knew this place–as emblematic of Palm Springs as Ayers Rock is of Australia. But then I saw a Tahquitz painting by Vaughan Davies.
We've always known that the Desert Art Center is a special place, but on the evening of Friday, Nov 11, 2016, something truly magical happened after hours in our gallery. Shawn Abramowitz asked Francinni Zabatato to be his wife. Check out his proposal and see her response in this short video recorded inside the Desert Art Center Gallery.
