“Rockin’ in Quartzsite!” 
A Celebration of the Arts – Quartzsite Style! 

Quartzsite, AZ –Proud Neighbors of Quartzsite (PNQ) invites the public to a most unique Public Art Event, called “Rockin’ in Quartzsite! A Celebration of the Arts”. 

Artists transform simple pieces of flagstone slabs into one-of-a-kind “Rock Art Pieces”.  Please join us on Saturday, November 3rd, 2012 from 6-8pm for Rockin’ Revel Artist Reception at the “Rock Motel”, 100 W. Kuehn (Tyson Wells Showgrounds). The public will have an opportunity to meet the artists and get a “Sneak Preview” of the incredible Rock Art for this year’s Rockin’ in Quartzsite.

This Public Art Event is held from November 3rd through March 1st.  On Saturday, March 2, 2012, PNQ holds a live “Rock Auction” to find permanent homes for the “Rock Art Pieces” and the People’s Choice Award will be announced.

Quartzsite is known worldwide for its rocks and shows. On Dec. 8, 2009, then Mayor Wes Huntley, proclaimed Quartzsite, Arizona, the Rock Capital of the World. Expanding on this popular theme, locals and visitors alike will find themselves looking for the Rock Art Pieces throughout town, using a “Rockin’ in Quartzsite” Map in the Desert Messenger and at the Business Chamber guiding folks from one end of town to the other. 

At each location, folks can vote for their favorite People’s Choice Award! This event benefits local organizations, businesses, and the Quartzsite community! Come to the Quartzsite, the Rock Capital of the World, and see what’s going on! For more Quartzsite events, go to
