If you’ve missed out on the Art Walk and Wine Tasting events at the Art Place, Palm Desert Design District, you’ll have one more opportunity to check out this FREE event Wednesday April 4, 2018. From 4pm to 7pm guests who are 21 and over can enjoy complimentary wine tasting by Desert Wine Shop on 111. There are amazing treasures to be found in the boutique galleries filled with unique art and decor. You will be amazed watching artists create one-of-a-kind sculptures and glass art right before your eyes.
The Art Walk and Wine Tastings have benefited local charities each month and April will be no exception with a portion of the proceeds going to (AMP) the Academy of Musical Performance. AMP was created in 2015 by a committee of volunteers involved with Coachella Valley Community Trust, with seed funding by a grant from Goldenvoice. The goal of this contemporary music education program is to enrich the lives of young musicians living in the Coachella Valley by fostering productivity and social responsibility through creativity, communication and collaboration in the development and enhancement of musical performance and concert production skills through participation in a “rock band” style educational setting. AMP is known for its outstanding summer program featuring the Valley’s top musicians teaching in small rock band format. They work on their performance and concert production skills through rehearsals, workshops, individual instruction, and live performances.
On April 4th, for the final Art Walk & Wine Tasting of the season, you will be able to see many of the students of AMP perform throughout the evening. If you get hungry while you’re listing to the live music and viewing the art, you can snack on hot dogs, pretzels, shaved ice and more. This will be a great way for The Art Place, Palm Desert Design District to wrap up a successful season and say thank you.
The center is located near the Hovley Ln Post Office at 41801 Corporate Way in Palm Desert.
