What is objet trouvé?

objet trouvé is the idea of using everyday objects and “found” materials to create stimulating works of art. We are coming to the Coachella Valley in the first ever Found Art Festival.

objet trouvé will join with award-winning found artists from all over the country. objet trouvé is a Found Art Festival within The Indian Wells Arts Festival
