Our gallery is a beautiful showplace for our talented juried member artists, providing an opportunity to show and sell paintings, photography, textiles, jewelry, glass, ceramics, mosaics, and more.

Desert Art Center celebrates 73 years of nurturing, educating and inspiring artists in the Coachella Valley. Our historic building started life as Palm Springs first school, and DAC continues that legacy, providing fine art education throughout the year.

Be a part of our lively creative community! As a member you’ll have the opportunity to meet local working artists and join us for our many shows, receptions and special events.

When you donate your time at DAC you become an essential part of the volunteer family that is the heart and soul of our organization.

DONATE AND HELP INSPIRE YOUNG ARTISTS

DAC’s long-standing donor-funded youth programs bring a legacy of learning and expert art instruction to the area’s Middle and High School students, nurturing creativity, building skills, and providing scholarships toward college art education.

The Middle School Arts Program (MSAP) is made possible by a generous grant from The Reed Foundation.
