Since its beginning, Palm Springs has been known as an artist colony, attracting artists and art lovers from around the world.
While much of the art can be viewed in museums and galleries, a surprising number of artistic works and installments can be viewed on street corners, in front yards and in our parks.
Pictured above are the larger than life, found art creations of the artist who lives in this Movie Colony neighborhood home. The robot-themed art is colorful, playful and on full display for neighbors and passers by.
You’ll find this home on the corner of E. Granvia Valmonte and N Arquilla Road, just a block from Frank Sinatra’s former Twin Palms Estate and a couple of blocks from Ruth Hardy Park (where you can also view other public art work).

Ruth Hardy Park is Palm Springs’ equivalent of New York’s Central Park. Set in the heart of the city, the spacious park is surrounded by upscale, luxury homes. Best of all, you own the land and there are no homeowner association fees (HOAs).
If you prefer to sightsee in Palm Springs from a bicycle, you’re in luck. There are many companies and organizations offering bicycle rides and tours in and around the city. Go Bike USA offers weekly and monthly cycling tours, at no charge, for recreationists, not racers.
