Palm Springs, California is known, the world over, primarily for it’s golf courses, swimming pools, movie stars, film festivals and midcentury modern architecture.
The city is also a mecca for artists. From it’s founding, artists have flocked to Palm Springs to paint, draw, photograph and create in whichever medium has inspired them.
If you drive around town, you’ll notice public and private art in nearly every neighborhood. One of my favorite forms of street art comes in the form of personalized mailboxes. Here are pictures of a couple I’ve spotted. Feel free to send me creative mailboxes I may have missed and I’ll post them here.
Does living in an artist colony appeal to you?
