The entrance to Escena Palm Springs has a new addition.
Yucca Valley artist Steve Rieman's kinetic sculpture, “Wind Wave” has become an official part of the 450-acre master-planned development comprised of an 18-hole golf course, dining, residences and additional land slated for future residential and hotel development at the Southeast corner of Gene Autry Trail and Vista Chino.
Participation in the Nov. 27 dedication included the City of Palm Springs, the Palm Springs Chamber of Commerce, Riverside County Supervisor John Benoit, and the Palm Springs Arts Commission.
“The word ‘Escena’ is sometimes translated as ‘stage’, and I think this is a wonderful stage for this particular piece of art,” said Rieman.
Escena Golf Club opened in 2005 as the first new golf course in Palm Springs in more than a decade. The Jack Nicklaus Design golf course includes driving corridors, classic bunkering, strategic design elements, native landscape accents and stunning views of the San Jacinto and Santa Rosa mountains.
The Escena Lounge & Grill pairs delectable California fusion cuisine and a retro vibe with eye-popping design and incomparable views. Voted the 2010 Top New Restaurant by Palm Springs Life magazine , Escena Lounge & Grill is open year-round to the public and offers breakfast, lunch, dinner and Sunday Brunch, along with Happy Hour and seasonal live entertainment.
