Festival Experience

Art in Paradise

Presenting 200 top juried artists, the Indian Wells Arts Festival showcases an international palette with artist accolades from some of the most prestigious art institutions including the Smithsonian, the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, the U.S. Department of Interior Art Museum, and Japan’s Kyoto Museum.

Upwards of 10,000 festival-goers descend on the 3-day event as international tourists, weekend-getaway trekkers and day-trippers.

Furthermore, attendees will be treated to the impeccably designed and maintained Indian Wells Tennis Garden. It is one of the world’s most revered and critically-acclaimed sports and entertainment venues. The state-of-the-art facility is often referred to as “tennis paradise” due to the beautiful weather, unmatched mountain views and palm trees.

Art

With artists traveling from all over the country and hailing from France, Italy, Japan, Peru, Uganda and beyond each year, the festival offers a diverse and engaging exploration of work across more than 25 modern and contemporary art movements spanning from impressionism and surrealism to abstract and pop-art. 

Patrons can be confident the artists showcased have a notable presence in the art world, as the festival reviews its participating artists’ distinctions. Thousands of one-of-a-kind works of art ranging from painting, sculpture, jewelry, wearable-art fashion, photography and ceramics make the festival a prime source of acquisition for serious buyers and new collectors.

Live Entertainment

Live jazz music enhances the leisurely atmosphere with artist demonstrations, special exhibits, and foodies’ delights available throughout the venue and under the shaded pavilion, along with savory spirits served at the ever-popular Oasis Bar and Champagne Circle bars.
