    “Demoiselle & Timeless Joy”

    by Yaqui Written May 16, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This whole boulevard is art and that is not all of it. You will find it all over Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, Cathedral City, and Palms Springs. It is amazing and I had wished I had much more time to seek it all out. I wish more communities would indulge in this public display of artistry.

    This sculpture is by LT Mustardseed. What was unique this day I caught a picture of a bug on bug (volkswagen). So I called it a Bug on a Bug.

    Clifford W. Henderson Memorial Bust

    by Yaqui Updated May 15, 2009

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clifford Henderson was a visionary who started monumental projects and brought them to fruition. Just as he built the Pasadena Winter Garden, the Pan-Pacific Auditorium and organized the National Air Races - he conceived an idea for a post-war community in the desert...and Palm Desert was born.

    Plaque reads:

    CLIFFORD W. HENDERSON
    Found of the City of Palm Desert
    Had the vision in 1946 to acquire
    This land and plan for the city
    Successful development

    This bust presented to
    Palm Desert in April 1978 by
    His friends and citizens in
    Deepest gratitude and appreciation
