THE PALM SPRINGS FINE ART FAIR
by Deborah Ripley
Presidents Day weekend marked the debut of the Palm Springs Fine Art Fair
, Feb. 17-19, 2012, at the convention center in the scenic desert oasis of Palm Springs, Ca. Designed to appeal to the town’s burgeoning population of rich, gay and retired boomers, who flock from Los Angeles to find mid-century modern second homes, the fair is the latest project of Rick Friedman
of the Hamptons Expo Group
, which hosts ArtHamptons
and two other boutique art fairs around the country.
