Noah’s Art

by Kaylah Stroup

While we were on the road, someone on Instagram mentioned that if we were going to go to Joshua Tree, California that we should check out Noah’s Art. We just so happened to be around an hour away, it was in the direction we were already heading, and the few photos I was able to quickly find looked amazing so we decided to stop by.

From 1989 until his death in 2004, Noah Purifoy devoted his time to making sculptures from found objects. His outdoor museum is open to the public, free of charge. It’s absolutely amazing. Quite a sight to see in the middle of the lonely desert! We were the only people there at the time, other than the woman who takes care of the place and her pup who went inside right after we got there, so we had the place to ourselves.

It was SO hot while we were there that I feel like I kind of rushed through it. There is so much to take in. Definitely worth a stop if you’re ever making your way through Joshua Tree!

All of the photos above were taken with a pentax k1000 and Fujifilm 35mm Superia X-TRA 400.
