Don’t skip Indio’s Desert X location

(Desert X)

Desert X, a collection of art installations around the Greater Palm Springs area running until the end of April, has seen growing crowds over the past few weeks. And while every Desert X project is worth a trip, do not skip out on the one in Indio.

Hollow Earth” from artist Glenn Kaino does not look like much from when you arrive.

No, this is not it.

This is!

What’s inside this shed about a 1/4 mile away from the parking area? Well, I don’t want to ruin the surprise for you (if you must know, click here), but it is a pretty cool illusion that, if you are like me, your brain will have a hard time processing.

Be sure to text “hollowearth” to 41411 for the entry access code to get inside the shed.

“Hollow Earth” is located at Golf Center Parkway and Avenue 42 in Indio.
