Noah Purifoy Outdoor Museum

The Noah Purifoy Desert Art Museum of Assemblage Art in Joshua Tree, CA is open to the public every day of the year from sun up until sundown and is free of charge. For the last 15 years of his life, Noah created ten acres full of art installations in the desert. Everything is constructed from junked objects and materials.

The day I went to visit it was a cold winter day. It was windy, but the space was quiet and serene. There are so many structures, objects, details. Junk made into something so much more creative and interesting. Chairs, toilets, TVs, bicycles, shoes, and tires. Take you time wandering through the wonders that Noah has created when you visit Joshua Tree!

I do not wish to be an artist, I only wish that art enables me to be.
