The Noah Purifoy Desert Art Museum was created when Noah moved his practice from LA to Joshua Tree in 1989. Until his death in 2004, he filled the area with his assemblage sculptures, working with any material he could get his hands on to create the structures that still exist today.
Being here and seeing this place is increadible... The desert is already a surreal spot, and this outdoor art installation adds to the eerie feeling. I felt like I was in Borderlands or Mad Max.
The way you're experiencing art is through a self-guided tour. There's a box for the brochures, but they were all out when we got there. I think it would be really cool to have an audio guide to the art that we could buy online, because otherwise it would look like a bunch of haphazard material to the untrained eye.
