Eighth Annual Rancho Mirage Artists Show: A Virtual 3D Exhibition

Friday, May 28, 2021
Rancho Mirage Public Library

The City of Rancho Mirage Cultural Commission is proud to present the Eighth Annual Rancho Mirage Artists Show: A Virtual 3D Exhibition. This unique online gallery will run April 5 through May 28, 2021. For the past seven years, visitors have toured the homes and studios of Rancho Mirage artists and strolled through the popular pop-up gallery. This year we will present a visually stunning, online art show. Artwork will be “hung” on the “walls” and visitors will be able to “stroll” from room to room to be fully immersed in a 360-degree gallery experience.


A special video series will also help add to this celebration of local artists. One of the things that makes this annual event so popular in its traditional studio format is the ability to directly connect to the artist. Our new "In Studio" video profiles will take this a step further, spending time getting to know some of the most talented artists in our community as they take us on a video tour of their workspace as they discuss their background, inspiration, philosophy and technique.
