"What draws us into the desert is the search for something intimate in the remote." ~Edward Abbey
Renowned artist/welder Simi Dabah recently donated this sculpture to the Twentynine Palms Historical Society. Dabah has been building welded steel sculptures from industrial scrap for more than forty years. He is a prolific artist who frequently donates his work to nonprofit institutions for installation or for fund-raising activities. His works are nonrepresentational and left untitled. It is up to the viewer to interpret them. The donation was facilitated by Larry Bowden.
The 2014 Twentynine Palms Annual
was held on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 8 & 9.
This years theme is "ALL RHYME, NO REASON."
