Noah Purifoy’s Desert Museum (Joshua Tree, CA)

It was a beautiful and hot sunny day out in the desert searching for the Desert Museum. If you want to witness dedication to art, then Noah Purifoy’s (1917-2004) assemblage work is a must see. His retrospective at LACMA was a glimpse of the what he has built out in Joshua Tree. I urge everyone to visit the Desert Museum and learn more about this artist that originated from Snow Hill, Alabama who has become a Los Angeles icon.
