We enjoyed the display of work by artists of the surrounding desert geology and vegetation. We were tent camping at a campground ten miles away. The town of Borrego Springs offers many amenities with this as an added surprising attraction.

The art institute has a variety of art buy local artists and rotating exhibitions. It is free -- with a requested donation. We very much enjoyed the photography contest exhibition.

Borrego is such a special place, that a visit to the Art Institute is a must and an utter delight! I love the Indian motives and the colors are so beautiful. Worth to see!

We hoped there would be some desert art in Borrego.....voila! While this is not a museum, or a large gallery, it had a nice, varied selection of mostly pottery and glass on our visit. Exhibits change. Some of the pieces are by local artists, but...More

it was a nice place to stop off at since there's not that much to do in Borrego. The art was traditional and not that unusual.

This desert community has many artists and this is the place to see their stuff. We were lucky enough to see a full display and it was joyous. Spend an hour, not more.
