Rancho Mirage City Councilman Scott Hines decided to get ideas from Albert Einstein, Sigmund Freud, and Gustav Mahler — or at least from their likenesses in wood cutouts by Rancho Mirage artists Karen and Tony Barone. The councilman plans to rotate the art in his office (all from local artists) on a quarterly basis.

“Nowadays, politicians need as much inspiration as they can get,” Hines says. “Surrounding myself with loaned art is one way of inspiring within myself creative solutions for the city of Rancho Mirage.”
