Are you planning to visit Palm Springs this February for Modernism Week? All of us at The Paul Kaplan Group have already purchased our tickets. Although many of the events and tours are sold out, I looked and there are still a variety of tickets available.
What is Modernism Week? Palm Springs Modernism Week is an exciting 11-day celebration of mid-century modern design, architecture and culture, Feb. 14 to the 24th. This design aesthetic originated in the 1940s, 50s, and 60s, and was typified by clean, simple lines which came to define desert modernism. The Palm Springs Modernism Week is filled with a variety of events including architectural tours, films, lectures, an architectural symposium, educational events, and chic, fun parties in cool mid-century modern homes that draws thousands of visitors from all over the world.
The Paul Kaplan Group is sponsoring a number of events and tours, as well as our Modernism Garage Sale on Feb. 24th. I’ve scanned through the event lists, and of what is still available, here’s what I would suggest:
13th Annual Modernism Show Preview Reception, and show the following days.
