Michael H. Lord Art Gallery in Palm Springs, California is a foremost leader of American Taste in Contemporary Art.

Michael H. Lord Gallery is a prestigious Art Venue in Palm Springs, California. Established in 1978, the Michael H. Lord Gallery is located in the Palm Springs Uptown Design District at 1090 North Palm Canyon Drive. Housed in an architecturally-significant building built in 1929 as the garage for the landmark El Mirador Hotel, the 6,000 square foot gallery showcases the finest in contemporary art.
Opening in 1928, the El Mirador was one of the most fashionable resorts of its day, catering to movie stars and captains of industry. The Spanish Revival styled garage was necessitated by the number of hotel guests and their automobiles.

The three sculptures seen in the centre of the showroom for the current exhibition are by American-Romanian artist Christopher Georgesco. Born in Nebraska, Christopher grew up in California, where his father, Haralamb Georgesco  had his private practice. Georgesco Senior was an internationally renowned architect of the early Modernist movement in Europe and the United States. His archives were donated by Christopher to the Getty Museum in the care of Special Collections Department.
