Historic Artists' Homes & Studios Virtual Road Trip: The Noah Purifoy Desert Art Museum of Assemblage Art
The Historic Artist Homes & Studios Virtual Road Trip is BACK in 2022! Join us to explore the unique creative spaces and art-making practices of six American artists. Fueled by the James Castle House in Boise, Idaho, and the Historic Artists' Homes and Studios (HAHS) program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, this six-part, monthly series ventures deep into the museums, homes, and preserved spaces that nurtured the creation of thousands of artworks.

Traveling from Abiquiú, New Mexico to Joshua Tree, California, as the fifth stop of this six-part virtual road trip, we’ll delve into the work of artist and sculptor, Noah Purifoy. As we venture into Purifoy’s Outdoor Museum, where his otherworldly, large-scale sculptures tower over an arid desert landscape, we’ll learn about his practice of using found materials and his abstraction of the everyday object into stunning assemblages. We’ll also discover how Purifoy’s philosophy and use of art as a tool for social change continues to resonate with contemporary audiences wherever his work is experienced.

This free, one-hour event will take place via ZOOM on August 17, 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT. One registration is needed per household. Live American Sign Language (ASL) will be provided.

The Noah Purifoy Foundation preserves and maintains the site Noah Purifoy developed in Joshua Tree, California. As a permanent cultural center and sculpture park open to the public, the site promotes public recognition and appreciation for the values that Purifoy’s work as artist and educator has embodied; and to pursue these goals in a manner that protects Purifoy’s contribution as an artist and educator.
