The Palm Springs Art Museum is world renowned for its sculpture collection, but that hasn’t kept it from collecting and showing an impressive range of artistically significant photography. The museum keeps up this tradition with its exhibition of Michael Childers photography. A shooter for Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine, Childers captured formal images of revelers attending the 1976 Los Angeles Drag Ball, showing a pre-AIDS audience having fun with gender identity, presentation and sexuality. The photos run in tandem with a 250-print exhibit of some of his friend Warhol’s most iconic works. Tomato soup, anyone? psmuseum.org
