WHAT WE DO
FOUNDERS: DIANE MOORE AND DANIEL FOSTER
In 2020 Diane Moore, past President of Coachella Valley Watercolor Society, and past President of Desert Art Center, conceptualized forming a plein air society encompassing all mediums.
A chance meeting with Daniel Foster, who also had this vision, supported and enhanced the depth and complexity of this vision. Daniel Foster is past Executive Director of the Riverside Art Museum, and the Oceanside Art Museum. In addition, he has created and founded several other art related nonprofits in the Inland Empire.
In early 2021 they began developing Desert Plein Air Association (DPAA) as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, its related plein air programs, and an annual festival.
