The MBCAC continues our mission to inspire and enliven the community through the arts by presenting a rotating line up of large temporary murals on the exterior wall of the Joshua Tree Art Gallery. For our first round, we feature @otherdesert, who created a poignant three-panel black and white painting empowering the right to vote.  Here are some wise words from the artist: “This may be the most important election of our lifetime!" is often said, and for once, the hyperbole is warranted. To vote is a deeply personal choice and a right for many. To not vote? Is also a right for many, regardless of the reason, and is the core message of this mural: Do with your vote what you will, because nobody should tell you otherwise. However you decide though, your choice still has consequences and power.”

As we reflect and shift with the daily changes and effects of COVID-19, the Morongo Basin Cultural Arts Council is committed to the health and safety of our community. During this time art has the power to connect, uplift and inspire everyone. While many residents are staying at home and reevaluating the new normal, the downtown Joshua Tree commercial strip remains active. We aim to catch the eye of a passersby and shift their current outlook to one of inspiration and intrigue. Stay positive, stay safe and continue to make and appreciate art.

We are accepting submissions for a new mural to be installed mid-November 2020, mid-February 2021, mid-May 2021 and mid-August 2021. We are happy to continue and adapt this great program started by JTAG founder Frederick Fulmer. Interested in being a future mural artist? Visit our call for work to learn more!

As we reflect and shift with the daily changes and effects of COVID-19, our commitment is to the health and safety of our artists, visitors, and neighbors. JTAG and Gallery 62 will be temporarily closed to the public until further notice. The MBCAC will continue to monitor the situation and will notify you of any updates in our 2020/2010 programming by email, our website, and through social media. Stay positive, stay safe and continue to make and appreciate art.
