Local Palm Springs artist chosen to create PS Pride art monument

The Pride Monument Board, an operating unit of the Greater Palm Springs Pride, held a community meeting on Tuesday afternoon at Hunters in Palm Springs to discuss and present plans for a new large-scale public art installation, the Pride Monument.

This art installation, which aims to be completed by 2026 for the 40th anniversary of Pride in Palm Springs, will commemorate, honor and celebrate the LGBTQ+ community's contribution to the City of Palm Springs and the greater Coachella Valley.

Artists were asked to submit proposals for the tribute in September 2023. 53 design proposals were submitted, all based on an RFP issued under the aegis of Call for Entry and Application Management for the Arts (CaFE) and the Western States Arts Federation.

Out of all of the submissions, a Palm Springs local, Jim Isermann, was selected to create the monument.

"What was so exciting is that we have 42 different artists submit from around the world to submit their ideas and it was a local artist who was selected by the jury," stated Palm Springs Council Member Ron Dehart. "Jim Isermann is a local artist whos work has been selected, and that's the piece that we're working on and folks are giving thoughts and ideas to."
