The Coachella Valley, home to Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert, Indian Wells, and Cathedral City has a new public art project. It's like the Cow Parade in Chicago, the Community of Angels in Los Angeles and the Trail of Painted Ponies in New Mexico.
The Path of the Bighorn benefits the non-profit Bighorn Institute.
Celebrity artists such as Cher, Chevy Chase and Phyllis Diller have been among the painters. Tony Curtis is still painting his ram.
Kids are getting into the project, too, with Painting for Knowledge, which is now at the Children's Discovery Museum.
My personal favorite is not up on the site yet, but I'll feature it as soon as it goes up. It's a great painting of two rams butting heads. The energy of the painting is fantastic.
You can still sponsor a ram, or become an artist that takes the white blank to reality.
You can do your part for this endangered species and keep watching for developments on the site. 15 of the 90 rams are out in the public so far, pregress is eminent.
