Desert X 2021 dates to be announced soon
The original opening date for Desert X 2021 was postponed due to the ongoing Stay Home Orders instituted in California because of COVID-19 and to protect our community, frontline workers, health care system, artists, visitors and all those who volunteer and contribute to the exhibition. Now that those orders have been lifted, the Desert X 2021 exhibition dates will be confirmed shortly. Once opened, the exhibition will be free and open to the public for nine weeks.
