To help kick off the fair’s Valentine Opening Preview Party, the fair bestows its Arts Patron of the Year Award to arts devotee Helene Galen who will be glamorously feted along with the desert’s A-listers.
Helene Galen has maintained for 25 years a major presence in the Coachella Valley philanthropic scene. Her recent donation of $1 million to the new Palm Springs Art Museum located in Palm Desert is key to the museum’s expansion and the new building is now just referred to as “the Galen.” She has served on a committee or board at the Palm Springs Art Museum for over 25 years.
