Artists Use Desert X Installations To Comment On Degradation Of Salton Sea
When you think of the Salton Sea, you think of an ecological disaster — bad smells, dead fish and birds, dust blowing in the wind.
You don't typically think of public art. The curators of Desert X are hoping to change that. This year the Coachella Valley art exhibition has expanded to include multiple installations near the Salton Sea.
On Monday's Midday Edition, we'll hear from two of the artists about how their artworks connect viewers to the sea.
The Desert X exhibition runs through April 21. Installation locations can be found at DesertX.org.
