You’ve probably passed it countless times. You can easily miss the two-story Muse Creative Center, a block north of El Mirasol and its hip neighbor, Dead or Alive, where East Palm Canyon Drive bends and becomes South Palm Canyon Drive.

CDAC brings its arts salon program to the Muse Center on August 3, from 5:30 to 7 p.m., when a few resident artists open their studios and guests can get a look at available workspace. Afterward, we’ll head to Thankful Thursday at Dead or Alive, which is donating 33 percent of the evening’s sales to California Desert Arts Council.

At the Muse Center, you’ll meet metal sculptor Mario Hurtado, painter Siomara Chaclan, and Maegan Carberry, a journalist and communications consultant by trade who will talk about birdbrain, her nonprofit clothing line for people who have been impacted by sexual assault. On her page on, Carberry says, “Birdbrain is about beauty. It’s an explosion of colors, stunning visuals, and a deep exploration of the relationships that make us thrive despite our setbacks. It’s about clothing as body armor.” See Desert Magazine’s story about birdbrain.

You’ll also have an opportunity to see two available studio spaces available on a month-to-month basis for $425 and $450.

The Muse Creative Center is located at 1500 South Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs.
