Palm Springs is forever tied to and truly is an open air museum of the Mid Century Modern look. From commercial buildings to private homes, stunning examples of this architectural style are part of everyday life in our Desert paradise.
Modernism week grew out of a successful show that was started in 2001 to showcase the style right here in Palm Springs. It has morphed into an international event every February including home tours, lectures, films, parties and of course the show that started it all held right here at the Palm Springs convention center. One of the best parts of the show is that each year more and more Modernism connections are found. For example this year will be the second year that the Airstream travel trailers of that era are on display. Also, this year there will be a special night lighting of featured commercial properties in downtown. Interesting and fun this is truly a not to be missed event.
Many sponsors and partners are now part of the event including the Palm Springs Art Museum and Palm Springs Historical society among others. Kudos to all the sponsors for bring such a relevant and interesting event to life in Palm Springs.
