The Palm Springs Art Museum & Villagefest (again), Palm Springs, California

The Palm Springs Art Museum ($12.50 per adult) is free on Thursday evenings from 4-8 during the weekly Villagefest, so we went to enjoy the Keith Haring exhibit, as well as other exhibits on show. The Haring exhibit was quite interesting, with art that was less colorful and more indicative of his somber take on the world. There were also a few Andy Warhols to enjoy, as well as the rest of the museum. The museum building was quite modern and nice, with friendly docents who were quite informative.

Of course, all of this art browsing made us hungry, so we enjoyed dinner at The Vineyard Tuscan Grill, where the third time was a charm - we finally found a very good, well staffed restaurant in Palm Springs! Although a bit on the expensive side (we're starting to think that all restaurants in the Palm Springs area will be on the expensive side), the service was very good and the food excellent.

Again, Villagefest brought out the interesting, the talented, and the crafty. One thing we forgot to mention last week was The Palm Springs Walk of Stars - similar to the Hollywood Walk of Stars, the Palm Springs Walk of Stars is dedicated to those stars who at one time called Palm Spring their home.
