Destination PSP is proud to present The Art Benches of Palm Springs Poster!  

In 2019 Palm Springs considered replacing the dozens of concrete benches at a cost of more than $400,000.  Local business owners, in conjunction with the Palm Springs Public Arts Commission offered to test hiring local artists to transform the benches.  

After the first dozen were completed, the pandemic hit and the project stalled.   Then, in an effort inspired by the Public Works of Art Project during the Great Depression, the business owners approached the Arts Commission with the idea of using the Art Benches project to do good in the community.   

Using Public Arts funds which come from developers fees and are restricted to public arts use, the groups launched the citywide Art Benches of Palm Springs projects.   More than 70 local artists, many of whom were out of work, were paid $1000 each or more to paint a bench.   The artists were strategically placed near local businesses that complemented their style. The Art Benches has now become a phenomenon where residents and tourists tour the business district to eat, shop and view the benches. The Bureau of Tourism uses the Art Benches Project as a tourist attraction.

And now Destination PSP Creative Director Tom Dolle has designed the Art Benches of Palm Springs poster featuring a selection of the benches.

The poster is available for sale at Destination PSP in store and online. Proceeds from the sale of the poster will fund additional public arts projects.

It's what we call a win-win-win-win-win situation!

Poster is 18 x 24 and has a 100# Gloss Cover.

Original art designed by Tom Dolle Creative Director of Destination PSP.

Indirect and Direct Signature requirements

Signature requirements apply to domestic US shipments ONLY

Orders $70 to $299.99 require an indirect signature.

This means that if the first delivery attempt is unsuccessful a note will be left at the address given under "Ship To". This note has the option for the customer to sign and the package will be left where specified by customer on the next delivery attempt.

Orders $300 and more require a direct signature.

A direct signature is obtained when the package is delivered to the shipping address and a signature is given to the delivery person. The signature cannot be left on a note, delivery notice, or any other method. It must be in person.

If after the third delivery attempt the necessary signature type has not been obtained, the package will be returned to Destination PSP. In the event a package is returned due to lack of signature, the purchase amount will be refunded, minus the cost for shipping even if order was eligible for free shipping. The shipping cost includes from Destination PSP to the shipping address and from the shipping address back to Destination PSP.

Example:
Order subtotal = $100
Shipping cost = $10 one way (so x 2 for shipping TO you and BACK to us)
Total refund = $80
