Chromaplex, Kas Infinite

Located at The La Quinta Public Library, this mural was created by local artist Kas Infinite, Chris Sanchez.
Sun and Moonbeam, Louis De Martino
This abstract sculpture stands tall and creates dramatic shadows as the sun sets. Symbolizing the sun and the moon, this bronze sculpture also has local touch.

Volta, John Cuevas
Another John Cuevas creation, "Volta" is a mural that explodes with psychedelic color!

Cahuilla Family, Felicia
"Cahuilla Family" honors the indigenous history of La Quinta with a life-size bronze sculpture of five Cahuilla women.
