Modernism Week is an exciting 11-day celebration of mid-century modern design, architecture and culture in Palm Springs, California. This design aesthetic originated in the 1940s, 50s, and 60s, and was typified by clean, simple lines which came to define desert modernism.
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.
Please know, that with your kind support, the monies raised are going towards the Modernism Week scholarship fund for local high school students continuing their college education in a design field. This coming year we are expanding it to four renewable scholarships, the double decker architectural bus tour for students and faculty, a four year donation towards the development phase of the Palm Springs Art Museum Edwards Harris Center, as well as support of like minded architectural and preservation groups.
