All of you MCM fanatics out there will want to mark your calendars (if you haven’t already done so!) for the upcoming Palm Springs Modernism Week. Once the playground for some of Hollywood’s greatest celebs, including Bob Hope, Dinah Shore, Bing Crosby, Marilyn Monroe, the legendary Rat Pack; Palm Springs epitomizes the glamour of Mid-Century Modern design. Every February, the city pulls out all the stops with a grand celebration of everything Mid-Century Mod.
This year Joseph Eichler will be honored at Modernism Week with a day full of activities that include a tour of the newly constructed Desert Eichler homes, a 21st Century incarnation of Eichler’s original homes. In addition to Eichler Day, participants can attend films and lectures on Modernism, sight-see on home tours, shop at the Palm Springs Modernism Show & Sale, and party nightly. What’s not to love?
Modernism Week runs February 11-21, 2016. For more information about tours and events visit Palm Springs Modernism Week.
