Noah Purifoy’s Outdoor Desert Art Museum

Artist/social activist Noah Purifoy moved to Joshua Tree in 1989 at the age of 72— and constructed a veritable ghost town out of cast off plywood, old TVs, tires, and other assorted garbage. Stroll through his abandoned art city, smirk knowingly at the wry political undertones, and be moderately creeped out by the atrophy of it all.
