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.

Its Biker Weekend in Palm Springs, but why not ride your hog up to the Palm Springs high desert for the 2012 Hwy 62 Art Tours?
A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE ART TOURS
Conceived in 2001 as a festival for all the arts, with 24 participating artists, the Hwy 62 Art Tours now features close to 200, including those working in music, literary, performance and visual arts.
“Open Studios” are still the main feature. A steadily growing number of artists open their homes and studios to an ever-expanding public. Each reflects the unlikely growth of the arts in this remote Palm Springs high desert community.
Along with the growing Art Tours, this past decade has seen the rise of a thriving arts community, where cultural events occur year-round. Hwy 62 Art Tours is the premiere arts event of the year in this unique place, when the local community welcomes the world to have a look.

The Paul Kaplan Group, Inc. is in the planning stages of opening a satelite Real Estate office in the high desert (Pioneer Town). While touring art, if you fall in love with the beauty of the high desert and see yourself wanting a home there, please give us a call! We’re excited to introduce our clients to this unique Southern California environment! 760-285-8559.
