Saturday, March 16, 2013, 1 – 3 pm - reserve your spot today

Visit A-Z West and the A-Z Enterprise, where steward Patrick Woody will lead you on an intimate tour of the house, studio, Wagon Station Encampment, Homestead Cabin, Regenerating Field, and shipping container compound.

A-Z West is located on thirty-five acres in the California high desert next to Joshua Tree National Park.  Since 2000 the grounds have been ever evolving as Andrea Zittel's test site for designs for living, where all aspects of day-to-day living—home furniture, clothing, and food all become the sites of investigation in an ongoing endeavor to better understand human nature and the social construction of needs.
