Event Details

The Palm Springs Art Museum presents Mythopetica: Symbols and Stories in the main museum June 11, 2023 - January 15, 2024.

This exhibition highlights the work of artists in the Southern California inland region whose work incorporates mythologies, iconographies, and cultural codes. These artists rework historical and contemporary symbols and narratives to create new visual imaginings.

Featuring ten artists working in diverse mediums, including photography, painting, and sculpture, the artworks in this exhibition draw attention to the multiplicity of powerful stories that permeate the region. Taken together, these artists prompt viewers to ask: how do stories from the past actively shape the present? How might the creation of new mythologies impact the development of future events? Through a critical engagement with myths and customs, these works prompt new considerations of what's possible.

Artists included in the exhibition are Edie Fake, John Flores, Daniel Gibson, Sky Hopinka, Armando Lerma, Fay Ray, Carlos Ramirez, Cara Romero, Chris Sanchez, and Lily Stockman.

The museum is open 10 am to 5 pm on Sunday, Friday and Saturday. On Thursday the museum is open from noon to 8 pm. (Free admission on Thursdays from 5:00-8:00 pm - funded by the City of Palm Springs).
