Modernism Week is tentatively planning a variety of new and favorite events. In-person events will likely include architectural walking tours, home tours, garden and driving tours, and more. All ‘live’ events will follow established public health protocols and observe social distancing.
The in-person activities will feature more than 20 tours and events in the Palm Springs area, including two designer Featured Homes that will be open for timed, ticketed, socially distanced tours, and the Palm Springs Modernism Show & Sale, which will be organized to allow for social distancing and timed entry. Other April events will include a variety of outdoor walking tours; tours of Sunnylands, Frank Sinatra’s former estate, and the Lautner Compound; narrated self-driving tours of Palm Springs architecture; self-guided modern landscape and outdoor neighborhood tours in Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage and Indian Wells; fashion events; vintage car exhibitions; and tours of newly-constructed architecturally significant private homes in Desert Palisades.
Modernism Week remains committed to its mission of celebrating and fostering appreciation of midcentury architecture and design and sharing free and low-cost educational opportunities with the public. These programs help preserve and beautify neighborhoods and communities throughout the Coachella Valley and provide education worldwide.
Tickets for in-person events will be available at modernismweek.com beginning at noon (PST) on Friday, January 1, 2021.
