La Quinta Art Festival 2020? The show must go on

New promoter chosen

It was with great sadness that artists and art lovers learned in June that there would not be an art festival in La Quinta in March 2020 because of differences in viewpoints/missions between the La Quinta Foundation and the city of La Quinta. Learn more here.

But, hold on folks, a committee comprised of 4 city officials plus an artist; a previous fine art event director; a community services commissioner; a local stakeholder that has experience working with fine art event producers in La Quinta; and a longtime La Quinta resident with extensive knowledge of previous fine art events have made a choice: Paul Anderson, long time organizer of the Sausalito Arts Festival. 

Good news? Bad news? I'm so ambivalent on this issue. The total professionally run LQAF was a beacon for other events that wanted to host a quality event that included wonderful artists, a qualified buying public and benefits to the community. Can it be replicated? 

The rest of the story about Anderson and the negotiations to find a new organizer:
