Desert art day

Gloomy mornings that threaten rain are good to spend in museums. Even if the museum is outside.

My GPS zigged and zagged me out north of Joshua Tree to the ten-acre piece of land where Noah Purifoy worked during his final years.

A lot of large scale desert art is created by inspired amateurs. Purifoy, however, was a noted artist.

The white structure in the background is entitled Ode to Frank Gehry

Drinking fountains for whites and coloreds

The blue walls are made of stacks of still-folded Sunday newspapers
