Hwy 62 Art Tours
October 15, 2016 @ 9:00 am - October 16, 2016 @ 5:00 pm
October 22-23 & 29-30, 2016 (15th Annual)
The annual Hwy 62 Open Studio Art Tours is sponsored by the Morongo Basin Cultural Arts Council (MBCAC). Founded in 2002 in Twentynine Palms, the event features two weekends of self-guided tours to the art studios, galleries, and exhibitions of 140 desert artists, plus special events.
Covering 50 miles over two weekends along the north border of Joshua Tree National Park, the studio tour is rather like a desert treasure hunt! (Maps are provided, bring water, and be prepared to drive on desert dirt roads to some of the studios!) The East End weekend is in Twentynine Palms, Wonder Valley, and East Joshua Tree; and the West End weekend tour is Morongo Valley, Yucca Valley, Pioneertown, Landers, and West Joshua Tree. Catalogs and maps for the Hwy 62 Art Tours are available at area galleries, Chambers of Commerce, Twentynine Palms Visitor Center, California Welcome Center in Yucca Valley, and MBCAC.
