Explore the incredible flora and fauna of the iconic 49 Palms Oasis, one of only five natural desert fan palm oases found in Joshua Tree National Park. This stunning mural was dedicated on April 22, 2006 and was painted by Larry and Nancy Eifert of Port Townsend, Washington, and stretches the entire 13×86-foot length of the west wall of the 29 Palms Visitor Center. This beautiful mural is complimented by an incredible 15-foot high steel sculpture that was created by local artist Steve Rieman, and is one of nearly 40 public art installations you can look forward to discovering across the city.
