The Palm Springs Art Museum collections focus on international Modern and Contemporary painting and sculpture, historically significant west coast artists, and contemporary Native American artists, as well as contemporary and studio art glass (Chihuly and others), historic and contemporary photography (Ansel Adams), and architecture and design.
Included are works by Chagall, Picasso, Warhol, Lichtenstein, Calder, Moore, and Rauschenberg; classic Western American Art by Moran, Russell, Remington and Ufer; and photography with special attention to natural, built, social, and leisure environments.
Designed by California architect E. Stewart Williams, the modern Museum building is the focal point of the 150,000 square feet complex and two sculpture gardens. The museum has two additional locations: the Palm Springs Art Museum Architecture and Design Center, and the Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Desert, The Galen.
