We are excited to be working with Art Patron Magazine to promote Joshua Tree Arts and Culture to a directed audience. This piece will function as a guide of sorts, with 40K special inserts printed – 30K will be incorporated into the September/October issue of Art Patron Magazine and an additional 10K will be stand-alones that may be used over the course of the coming year.  

The insert will highlight upcoming fall events, profile locals, and tell stories about the history of the community. Included are articles on the Hwy 62 Studio Tours, Joshua Tree National Park Art Expo, Joshua Tree Music Festival, and at least 12 other pieces on music venues, local art fairs and festivals, experimental art, theater, youth programs, public art, poetry, literary arts, and a calendar of events.

The publication is intended to include as many creatives, organizations, individuals, venues, and businesses that support these endeavors as possible. The print costs are being supported by sponsorships, friends of, and advertising.

Our hope is that this meet-and-greet will provide an opportunity for Christine and Bruce, to answer questions, help you sign up for the first time on the Joshua Tree Arts and Culture Directory for, and discuss the possibilities of ads or advertorial.


Laptops and iPads will be available so you can sit with our team to learn about the online directory and get a glimpse of what your advertorial might look like.
