Our Giant Rock: A Community Touchstone in the Mojave – Digital Exhibit now open

Saturday, September 11, 2021

This is NOT an online exhibit!

The Hi-Desert Nature Museum would like to announce that “Our Giant Rock: A Community Touchstone in the Mojave,” a digital exhibit and archive, is now available for public viewing.  This interactive touchscreen exhibit encourages visitors to discover and explore the nuances that make Giant Rock a unique and cherished Morongo Basin landmark.

Giant Rock is most notoriously known for the ‘giant’ personalities who lived near and even under it. However, it has also served as an intermediary for certain stories and events.  The exhibit provides a series of interpretive narratives explaining these nuances while incorporating some never-before-seen images, documents, publications, and videos which help illustrate Giant Rock’s history.

“Our Giant Rock: A Community Touchstone in the Mojave,” was made possible with support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
