The students are excited to show their work once again to the desert audience in a reception that will be held at Melissa Morgan Fine Art Gallery (73-660 El Paseo, Palm Desert), a prestigious contemporary gallery, on Friday, May 3 from 4-7 p.m. At 6 p.m., songwriting students from Idyllwild Arts Academy will perform their original compositions at a free concert in the gallery’s sculpture garden down the block.

The exhibition, which is free and open to the public, will also be on view on Saturday, May 4 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will feature the year’s best visual works from the pioneering arts high school that has been changing lives through the transformative power of art for more than 70 years. With the popularity increasing over the years, the exhibition now takes up the main section of the gallery with an expanded breadth and quantity of art works than in year’s past.
