Riverside
The cultural ecology of Riverside County is as diverse as its geography. From the lavish golf courses in Rancho Mirage to the modern architectural oasis of Palm Spring, the conceptual artwork of the high deserts and the freak-folk of Joshua Tree, Riverside - mountain, desert and all - is a magnet for art and artists of all types. A place of retreat, abandon, homesteading and decadence, Riverside County encapsulates the cultural diversity of Southern California.
