A huge big up to the ACE Hotel staff in all cities for their coordination and support and at the ACE Hotel Palm Springs and Swim Club for their smiles, quick feet, delectable meals and cocktails and allowing our big dogs to roam the decks.
I can’t be more thankful to the artists, Leah Rosenberg, Abby Portner, Anna Sew Hoy, Trinie Dalton, Eve Fowler and ACE Hotel for helping to make the “Snow in the Desert & Seeking the Present” an ultimate success. And to our extended posse who are all artists as well; Danielle, who took all these beautiful photos which you will see more of in the upcoming First Person Magazine issue as well as video of our artist panel discussion. Dorien, for her chillout poolside DJ set for an epic 5 hours. Drawlings live set. Tiffany and Allie, filmmakers and friends from LA. And Bay Area dwellers who made the commute.
I love bringing art to the people where they least expect it, so thanks everyone for sharing my vision for an artist retreat. Let’s do it again. Here is a short glimpse of our weekend. More to come after we visit a few more cities to explore artist’s perspectives outside of the grid.
