Black Rock Art Gallery

The Arts

The gallery is located in the Black Rock Nature Center and exists as a space for presenting contemporary interpretations of themes related to the park. Exhibitions are made by selected JTNPA-funded Artists in Residence, as well as community and other artists. 

Joshua Tree National Park management is pleased to announce a new art exhibition by Joshua Tree-based artist Ben Allanoff. RUST is an exhibition of rust prints on canvas made using rusted steel, usually found as scraps. Several of the works incorporate steel elements, while others carry the rusted imprint of the steel on canvas.  

Ben Allanoff works primarily with plant material, steel, wire, and found objects. He creates large scale outdoor installations, smaller tabletop sculptures, and 2D artworks. Ben grew up near Philadelphia, PA and graduated from Duke University.  

The exhibition will run from January 13, 2023 until March 28, 2023, at the Black Rock Art Gallery in the Black Rock Nature Center, located at 9800 Black Rock Canyon Rd, Yucca Valley, CA 92284. There will be an opening reception on Friday January 13, 2023 from 5pm to 7pm. The building is open 7 days a week, 8am – 11am, 12pm-4pm.
