NOW ON EXHIBITION // Imaging Change: History, Memory, and Social Justice

Imaging Change considers a range of photographic approaches to historical memory, and how the past can shape notions of self and community that are relevant to reflect upon at this moment.

As a point of departure, The Birmingham Project by Dawoud Bey is a 50-year commemoration to the victims of Civil Rights-era violence that connects the legacy of the 1960s to the twenty-first century.

Palm Springs Art Museum | Murder Mystery at the Museum

What an exciting way to start the New Year! Have you and your friends purchased tickets to the Murder Mystery at the Museum? Click the link below for tickets!

Take part in an evening of art and fine cuisine as you enjoy the museum’s selected galleries and featured artwork with a glass of wine or a cocktail and tasty nibbles. Alas, our evening goes awry. A shot rings out, a precious work of art is missing, and the game is afoot. Join in the fun and mystery to try to solve the crime while enjoying a sumptuous three-course dinner with wine sponsored by Westwood Catering. Dinner will begin promptly at 6:30 p.m.; this may be your last meal, so don’t be late! Who knows, the murderer may even be you.

5:30–8:00 pm in the Atrium and select galleries
$200 | 120 person capacity ($125 tax deduction)

Olfactive Listening - Incense as a Meditative Muse, with Persephenie // FREE with admission
