“We are excited to announce Free Summer Thursdays at the main museum and to have our three locations stay open all summer for the community to enjoy,” said Elizabeth Armstrong, Palm Springs Art Museum’s JoAnn McGrath Executive Director “We invite residents and visitors to take advantage of the special programs and exhibitions.”
 
Get out of the heat and into a cool theater with the Hot is Cool: Sizzling Summer Film Series. In collaboration with Palm Springs International Film Society, the museum’s Annenberg Theater presents free films at 6 p.m. on the third Thursday of the month beginning June 15. Patrons will enjoy Queen of the Desert on June 15; Desert Hearts on July 20; Paris, Texas screens August on 17; and the series closes on September 21 with Tracks. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Films are subject to change.
 
Keep the kids busy and creative this summer at the Museum Art Camp. Children ages five through 12 will explore exciting artistic journeys with creative hands-on projects and gallery adventures led by a team of experienced museum educators and visiting artists. Camp activities are held indoors. Weekly sessions are held Monday through Friday. Camp at Palm Springs Art Museum will be held June 26 – 30 and July 10-14. Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Desert camp runs July 17-21 and July 24-28. A limited number of scholarships are available for financial assistance to those in need. For more information and a list of activities, please visit psmuseum.org or call (760) 322-4852.
 
July brings a month-long S/LAB to the museum’s Architecture and Design Center. Brooke Hodge, Director of Architecture and Design, together with colleagues from across the museum, offers a Summer Lab that will engage the community in workshops and design exercises related to the new park planned for downtown Palm Springs.
 
Concurrently, the Architecture and Design Center, in partnership with Palm Springs Modern Committee, will present student work from St. Theresa Catholic School’s Structures program, an in-class curriculum on the topic of modernism. On view will be a selection of sixth grade architectural models, seventh grade paintings and eighth grade presentations about preservation and our community.
 
Open now at Palm Springs Art Museum is Making It Modern, a new installation of the museum’s foundational collection of works by international modern artists in Europe and the Americas. The exhibition is organized around six key principles that demonstrate how modernists pioneered a new aesthetic language that defined shifting perspectives in the 20th Century. This installation is on view until December 23, 2017.
 
In addition, Pat Lasch: Journeys of the Heart remains on exhibit at Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Desert through October 15. Lasch’s oeuvre incorporates a range of media, from ceramic, bronze and cut paper to wood sculpture and lace-making. The exhibition also features the delicate cake and pastry sculptures for which the artist is best known.
 
The three museum locations are open throughout the summer. Palm Springs Art Museum and the Architecture and Design Center are open Friday through Tuesday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Thursdays 12 p.m. to 8 p.m., closed Wednesdays and major holidays.
