Thanks to Spectrum, the heart of the Coachella valley created a union between art enthusiast and artists, giving people the opportunity to meet authors like Jeffrey Bisaillon, Anita Lewis, Lisa Ashinoff, James Paterson, among many others.
Live demonstrations by artists such as Maria McDonough, Greg Barnhart, Juan-Manuel Alonso, Robin Raznick and Alan Krugs also took place.

The fair achieved a very interesting integration between art collectors, universities, local art institutions, alternative venues, emerging artists and spectators.
