The annual HWY 62 Open Studio Art Tours is a one-of-a-kind experience for art lovers and art buyers to create a free customized self-guided tour of artist studios across the Morongo Basin communities: Morongo Valley, Yucca Valley, Pioneertown, Rimrock, Flamingo Heights, Landers, Joshua Tree, 29 Palms and Wonder Valley. Over three weekends in October visitors can experience the workplaces, lifestyles, and desert settings of artists who’ve been drawn to the area and made homes here over the last 50 years. The HWY 62 Open Studio Art Tours allows visitors to enjoy the beauty of the high desert, immerse themselves in its creative community and the opportunity to acquire art directly from local artists and makers. With the influx of many new artists to the high desert, this year promises a wide diversity of mediums, styles and prices. The event is free and open to everyone.

The HWY 62 Open Studio Art Tours is an annual multi-disciplinary desert-wide open studio art tour. In 2022 192 artists shared their work at 134 studios throughout the high desert gateway communities of the Joshua Tree National Park.
The HWY 62 Open Studio Art Tours is one of the most significant annual events in the high desert, and 2023 is our 22nd year. This is the largest long-running art studio event in the West Coast.
The concept of open studio art tours in itself is a fairly common thing: in our desert environment with questionable GPS, hand painted or missing road signs, and vast vistas to the edge of the earth the open studio art tour becomes an extraordinary thing. The artists here have chosen a world like no other, in which to create and share their work.
