Reduce Reuse Recycle 
Don't miss the temporary exhibition, "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle," a showcase of artwork contributed by local artists made from recycled or reused materials.   This exhibition is designed to make people rethink our throw-away society by sharing the local community's innovative and often surprising use of discarded items.  In conjunction with the exhibition, the Morongo Basin Cultural Arts Council will display artwork from their "Desert Moods" show.  Both exhibitions will be on display through April 25, 2015
