Our Inaugural year was a success!
It was like falling in love all over again … exciting, yet calm … intense, yet easy … new, yet familiar. For me, the 2020 amazing art experience conjured feelings of falling in love all over again. I had no idea that coming out of retirement and embarking on this new adventure would be quite this magical.
On Friday, a woman walked up to me and said “Hi Paul, I’m not sure if you remember me, It’s Jane.” I looked at her, paused, and felt a ‘yes, I know you too feeling, but from where?’ And then in a moment, I had reconnected with an old friend from High School who had moved to the Coachella Valley from Washington a few years back. It had been over 40 years since we’d seen each other.
This Art Celebration is about bringing together new and old and connecting with fellow artists, enthusiasts, patrons and community members who all share a passion for art.
I appreciate what we collectively created in La Quinta with Celebration 2020! Thank You founding artists and community members for being a part of an extraordinary art weekend.
