Desert X 2021: The Jackrabbit Homestead

“Jackrabbit Homestead” by Kim Stringfellow at DesertX 2021 is an art installation on display that explores the legacy of the Small Tract Act in California’s Morongo Basin region near Joshua Tree National Park.

Located near Palm Springs, her recreation of a 122 sq foot cabin built from a kit was not uncommon among homesteaders in the 1950s.
