Hey lovelies!

Here are the first set of pictures from Saturday's day trip to the desert, it was more of a spontaneous trip. Ideally I was thinking of only going to Palm Springs but then I remembered about Noah Purifoy Foundation in Joshua Tree, this place was on my bucket list for a while so I decided to stop there first and it was definitely worth the trip! 

Noah Purifoy Foundation is an outdoor art museum of random installations and sculptures spread out in a 10-acre piece of land in the middle of the desert. The art is made out of recycled scraps and other random objects like chairs, tin, bicycles, wood, tires, etc. The main reason behind this art museum is to preserve Noah Purifoy's existing works of art. Noah Purifoy was a sculptor and visual artist, who was also the co-founder of the Watts Towers in LA, which I also recommend visiting, love his work!

"I do not wish to be an artist. I only wish that art enables me to be."- Noah Purifoy, 1963

Hope you guys enjoyed the pics! 
Stay tuned for more :)
