The City of Palm Springs


A temporary to permanent installation with the City of Palm Springs. Depicting the word WOW to elicit a similar response from the observer, and also to activate into a deeper connection with the fundamental experience of awe and wonder. This piece is 5’x5’x5’x1/4″ acrylic painted steel.


To activate the downtown area at the entrance to the LGBTQ bar/restaurant row. To bring inspiration and enjoyment to the area.


The city approached me to use an already existing piece of work as a temporary installation which they will now purchase and make permanent.
