Modernism – which originated in the 1950s and 1960s – is a design aesthetic defined by clean, simple lines and elegant informality. The annual Modernism Week will be held in the Palm Springs area from February 16-26, 2017 to celebrate that classic mid-century design aesthetic and architecture.
The celebration features an annual architecture symposium, the Architecture and Design film series, lectures, home tours, double-decker bus tours, a pre-fab showcase and much more at venues throughout the Palm Springs area.
This highly anticipated event is perfect for art lovers and Modernism enthusiasts looking for artistic inspiration that goes above and beyond museums. Tickets go on sale November 1, so plan in advance for popular events like the tours.
Growing in popularity is the Fall Kick-Off to Modernism Week, held each October. This year the event will be held Oct. 21-23, 2016, and will feature bus tours, walking tours, and other exciting events.
