Palm Springs Modernism Week

The Annual Modernism Week took place in Palm Springs in mid-February.  I attended this unique event with Tom Graham and Lisa Foster who own an Eichler home in Sacramento.  Tom and Lisa are avid members of Sac Mod and are passionate modernist enthusiasts.

Modernism Week actually spans 11 days and is a festival celebrating mid-century (1940-60) modern design, architecture, art, fashion and culture in Palm Springs. The festival attracts architects, designers, collectors and modernism aficionados from around the world.  Last year, approximately 40,000 enthusiasts attended the festival.

More than 150 events - home tours, films, lectures, bus tours, nightly parties, vintage fashion shows, and garden tours - are scheduled during the run of the festival.  In addition, there were a modernist art and furniture sale, vintage period car and RV shows.  Over 9 days, we participated in eight events.
