Art Gallery of Windsor is screening a film about the Salton Sea...it was supposed to be the Californian Riviera but now is considered an ecological disaster.
Back in the 1950's some folks in California thought they'd turn the area around Salton Sea into a tourist destination...the idea was to turn it into the Californian Riviera. But, things didn't turn out quite like they expected.Shortly after, the project was abandoned and the Salton Sea became well, let's just say it's not the way it used to be. The story of Salton Sea is being presented this Wednesday afternoon at the Art Gallery of Windsor.
it's screening the documentary film, Plagues and Pleasures on the Salton Sea.Sandi Wheaton is a Windsor photographer who has herself documented the Salton Sea in her photographs.She's introducing the film on Wednesday.
This afternoon Sandi joins me in the studio.
