No wonder we are taking so many calls of smart folks who are cashing in on their homes in Seattle, and retiring to Palm Springs.

The Paul Kaplan Group is excited about a new curated exhibition of artwork called Desert X that is currently spread throughout the Coachella Valley, featuring site-specific pieces by established and emerging artists, including Doug Aitken, Richard Prince, Glenn Kaino, Phillip K. Smith and Sherin Guirguis, among others. The exhibition, curated by Neville Wakefield, continues through April 30, 2017 and is free to visitors, with 15 of the 16 works mapped out by address and GPS coordinates. The 16th work, Shybot by Norma Jeane, is one that art-seekers may never see, as it is a small, solar-powered roving vehicle that is continually traversing the desert, with heat sensors that send it speeding away if it gets too close to a human.
