How wonderful that a local artist has achieved the recognition of having his sculpture displayed on El Paseo in Palm Desert. It is a sign that music and the arts are flourishing on the Hill.

We all know our beloved local musician of American Idol fame, Casey Abrams. So get to know Dore’s work by visiting his extensive outdoor gallery in Mountain Center. It’s adjacent to the iconic upended motorcycle marked by the sign — “Ouch.” Hopefully, reminding our bountiful motorcyclists to be careful and slow down.

If the sculpted metal gate is open, Dore has told me his outdoor gallery is open to visitors.
