The Art Queen

In the town of Joshua Tree, the Art Queen was designed by Shari Elf, a singer-songwriter and a fan of creating art from trash, and Randy Polumbo, a visual artist whose work has been displayed at Coachella, as a space to celebrate "art for art's-sake." The six buildings and the land around them feature art of all styles, much of it Burning Man–esque, but it also includes more traditional work. Artists are happy to speak with you about their inspiration, and each visit will likely include new pieces.
