Yesterday I visited Noah Purifoy’s Outdoor Desert Art Museum of Assemblage Sculpture, ten acres of weird and awesome. This is from the Noah Purifoy Foundation:
Born in Snow Hill, Alabama in 1917, Noah Purifoy lived and worked most of his life in Los Angeles and Joshua Tree. Purifoy moved his practice out to the Mojave desert in 1989, where he lived for fifteen years until his death in 2004. Recognized as the founder of the Watts Towers Art Center in the 1960s, Purifoy created ten-acres full of large-scale sculpture on the desert floor in Joshua Tree. Constructed entirely from junked materials, this otherworldly environment is one of California’s great art historical wonders.
I don’t really need to say much else about it, except that it blew me away. Junk Dada. truly one of the strangest and coolest art experiences i have had. visit http://noahpurifoy.com for more.
