Modernism Week’s signature February Event is an annual celebration of mid-century modern design, architecture, art, fashion and culture. This exciting festival takes place in February in the Palm Springs area of Southern California. Modernism Week features more than 350 events including the Modernism Show & Sale, Signature Home Tours, films, lectures, Premier Double Decker Architectural Bus Tours, nightly parties and live music, walking and bike tours, tours of Sunnylands, fashion, classic cars, modern garden tours, a vintage travel trailer exhibition, and more. Check out Modernism Week’s website, and this program of all events!
Join Landmark Society staff for a truly personalized visit to Palm Springs during this fascinating festival. Larry will be working with his college roommate, Ron Duby, to sift through the hundreds of events and take you to the highlights and the hidden gems. Ron could write an entire book on ModWeek. He was a board member of Palm Springs Preservation Foundation, one of the three Palm Springs architecture and preservation non-profits that organized ModWeek fifteen years ago. Ron and his partner Ken live in a “Butterfly Alexander” designed by their friend, the late, great Bill Krisel, and built by The Alexander Construction Company, a local legend. Ron and Ken will be giving us a private tour of their home and hopefully joining us throughout the trip.
