Around Palm Springs, Art, and The 2020 Alt Summit Part 2

I shared my experience here about 2020 The Alt Summit here, and some of the things I had experienced, especially doing my round table. While I was there, there were some beautiful sites, and I wanted to show you what else I saw at the conference and around Palm Springs. What I loved is there seemed to be so much art in the Summit, and the Palm Springs area. It was just so creative. I wish I had more time because there were a ton of galleries in the Downtown. Even just the view was art. It was hard not to take a ton of pictures.

At the Ace Hotel, they had a really cool rock formation-type sculpture.

Artist Candance Rose Rardon painted these hands in sign language that spelled out ALT.

There was a New York Week Fashion Experience wall by Victoria-Riza Hyde and Donna Moncur.

This installation by Ringo and Sarah Alexander of Ringo’s Girl was really fun.

I loved all of the little houses.

And there was a live painting going on by Artist Michael Corr of Nina Simone.

It was really cool to watch the artists work on their craft live.

I managed to sneak away for about 40 minutes to downtown Palm Springs where I ate an ice cream cone for lunch, and then visited a really fun boutique, Thick as Thieves.

It was cute from even the sidewalk!

The inside was amazing! It was set up like a little house, and I couldn’t take enough pictures.I loved the organic mix of boho and vintage.

They had lovely vignettes set up all over the store. It’s not a huge store, but it had big impact.

I love how they used vintage encyclopedias as display. If you are ever wondering what to do with vintage reference books like that, check out this post here.

The ceiling in the backroom was amazing. It was entirely covered in macrame. If you know about my macrame experience, you’ll know why I am so impressed.
