Palm Springs Art Museum, Annenberg Wing and Clayes III Wing
 
Unsettled is a sweeping presentation of contemporary art by more than 75 artists living or working in the Greater West. The exhibition’s fertile terrain is a “super region” that runs from the top of Alaska, through the North American West, and all the way down to Central America, and the work created here explores the geography of vast frontiers, rich natural resources, diverse indigenous peoples, and the inevitable conflicts that arise when these factors coexist.

Palm Springs Art Museum Architecture and Design Center

The work of architect Hugh M. Kaptur (b. 1931) will be the subject of an exhibition at Palm Springs Art Museum Architecture and Design Center in Spring 2019. Kaptur was a visionary designer who practiced in Palm Springs and the surrounding Coachella Valley area from the late 1950s through the early 2000s. With more than 200 built projects in the area—residential, commercial, and institutional—he played a significant role in the architectural development of Palm Springs. Many of his designs are considered among the most creative and innovative of the era. Somewhat less well known, at least beyond the Coachella Valley, than the generation of Desert Modern architects that preceded him (Wexler, Cody, Williams, Frey, Krisel, and others, this will be the first museum exhibition of Kaptur’s body of work and reinforces the museum’s commitment to telling the story of Palm Springs architecture and design. In 2015, Kaptur gifted his archive of architectural drawings, models, slides, and other materials to the Palm Springs Art Museum and many of the archival materials will be included in the exhibition.
