The Art of Santiago – The Lobby Photo

During the renovation of Santiago, the resort’s design team took great care in selecting the art that is displayed at your Boutique Oasis.  On occasion, Santiago Stories will provide you with backgrounds of the pieces you see throughout the hotel and explanations of the art program choices.

The photo that hangs in the hotel lobby was selected as part of the Modern Ranchero style that became the design focus for the renovation of the resort. The black and white image is a still from the movie The Return of the Seven and features seven sharpshooters who protect a Mexican Village from a deranged rancher.

The movie, also called Return of the Magnificent Seven, is the first sequel to the very popular western, The Magnificent Seven, which is currently being remade for release in the fall of 2016. Featured in the center of the photo is Yul Brynner, who was the only cast member from the original movie to return for the sequel.

11th Annual Meet the Museum Party ‘The Art of Justice’

The Palm Springs Art Museum ­Meet the Museum Party is one of desert’s hottest social and art events of the year and a premiere event of White Party Weekend. This year the event is themed The Art of Justice and attendees are encouraged to dress as their favorite comic book hero – and believe us many will! The evening includes DJ Corey D and a live performance by international recording artist Kristine W.

Meet the Museum serves as the museum’s main membership drive party. After a night of dancing, hors-d’oeuvres, open bar and being surrounded by the museum’s exhibits –  participants walk away with a year membership to the museum!

Anyone coming to Palm Springs for White Party should join in the celebration on April 8th and be a hero of the museum by supporting the arts and dressing as their favorite super hero.

The event typically sells out each year, so if you’re heading to Palm Springs for White Party, get your tickets by visiting the Palm Springs Museum site, and get ready to experience The Art of Justice.

Virgin to serve Palm Springs year-round

View the full version of this article here

Virgin America announced it will offer year-round service from Palm Springs International Airport to San Francisco. The move expands Palm Springs air-service during a time of year when most airlines scale back their flights into Palm Springs.

“As the only airline headquartered in California, we know that Palm Springs is a popular destination for our loyal Bay Area guests – and couldn’t be more pleased to be expanding our seasonal SFO (San Francisco International Airport)-PSP schedule to year-round service,” said John MacLeod, senior vice-president of planning and sales at Virgin America, in a statement.

The new year-round SFO-PSP flights are on sale now and can be purchased at virginamerica.com or 1-877-FLY-VIRGIN. Travelers can use the special promo code “PALM20” for up to 20 percent off the fare of their SFO-PSP flight now through 11:59 p.m. PST on February 14 at www.virginamerica.com. Virgin America’s SFO to PSP service will operate four times weekly through the fall.

Virgin America began flying to Palm Springs from San Francisco in 2011, offering seasonal service during Palm Springs winter tourism season. The airline has reported a 20 percent increase in passenger activity on its Palm Springs routes since 2014.
