‘ART’ moving to Palm Desert
This past summer, the Festival of Arts featured a new event called “Art Live! Work in Progress,” during which patrons could watch the evolution of a piece of art from concept to completion. One of the projects was a collaboration among Monica Dunham, Carol Tripp Martens, Gary Monji, Walter Reiss, Greg Riley, Scott Schoenherr, Fred Stodder, Derek Voien, Scott Young, Patricia Turnier, Linda Saville, Less Hall, Gavin Heath and Michael Ezzel.
In 58 days, these ceramic artists transformed a lump of clay into a statue, affectionately named ART, that weighs more than 700 pounds and measures more than 8 feet tall.
