Lorraine and Randy, the current owners of Elephant Car Wash, allowed us to set up our easels in across the street from the mid-century structure, where we painting the iconic sign from life.
Elephant Car Wash has been an institution in the Coachella Valley ever since it opened in the mid 60s. The current owners take stewardship of the world famous sign very seriously. They are also environmentally conscious: the car wash uses environmentally-friendly products, sends used water to a treatment facility, and makes sure everything recyclable gets actually recycled.
