In an inspiring celebration of creativity and community, the City of Desert Hot Springs is delighted to announce the commencement of an extraordinary $4.7 million grant initiative orchestrated by Creative Corps Inland SoCal. This groundbreaking endeavor warmly welcomed artists, visionaries, and engaged community members to participate in a series of Listening Sessions that traversed the Southern California region, illuminating the power of art as a catalyst for change.

One such luminary shining brightly amidst the recipients of the prestigious Creative Corps grant is none other than Mr. Bernard Hoyes, a gifted local artist hailing from the heart of Desert Hot Springs. His project, titled “Master Printer Invitational Printmaking Studio Workshops for Professional, Emerging, and Student Artists,” has garnered well-deserved recognition. Mr. Hoyes’ vision expands horizons, inviting artists into a realm of collaborative etching at the picturesque Syncona Mesa.
