Easy parking, easy access, very cool paintings, sculpture, mixed media and photos. Several artists were in-house to chat with and observe. There is something here for anyone's taste and budget.

We saw this white, long, single-story building as we were leaving the consignment shops on Palm Canyon and drove over to have a look. One shop (Artize) where we stopped was really a delight. One of the artists was there, preparing for an upcoming art...More

Thank you for stopping by Backstreet, on_the_go98765 - we appreciate it! Backstreet is a wonderful combination of working studios, galleries and arts-related businesses and hours of operation do vary. Currently Wednesdays through Saturdays will have the most galleries open, but you can find some open...More

A place for people who are interested in art. Not a big selectiom here, but the friendly artists lead you through their work, paintings, photography and other pieces of art.

Basically a strip center that was predominantly closed. NOT an art DISTRICT at all. Misleading. Disappointing and a waste of time.

Located just off East Palm Canyon, this collection of art galleries will delight your imagination and curiosity. Ceramics, glass, wood, metal and paintings can be found here. Plenty of parking. Typically open Thursday through Sunday. Artists are friendly and open to discussing their work.

Some interesting art. It didn't feel like the usual stuff mass produced for tourists. It is small so doesn't take a lot of time but we had nice conversations with 3 of the artists and will probably buy a piece from one of them.

We visited the shops in the Backstreet Art District last week. It's just a few miles from downtown and well worth the trip if you want to see high-end art. The shops (about 10-12 stores) all seem to be new and many have the work...More

We literally just stumbled upon this artsy smorgasbord by following signage from E Palm Canyon, but imho, it should be in the top ten things to do in Palm Springs. There are about a dozen shops representing all mediums of art and you can meet/watch...More
