Modernism Week In Palm Springs

Modernism is hitting Palm Springs hard this week, making it a hotbed of Mid-Century activity.  Palm Springs’ annual Modernism Week celebration kicks off Thursday (Feb. 13) with the after-dark Modern Mambo dance extravaganza in the Caliente Tropics Hotel (c. 1964) and continues through Sunday, February 23.

Events for Modernism Week will include the Palm Springs Fine Arts Fair, which features national and international artists and works of art; a self-drive Desert Contemporary Home Tour; walking tours; bus tours; films and lectures; jazzy parties; and lots of shopping.

Palm Springs is the epicenter of Mid-Century Modern architecture and Desert Modernism lifestyle.  In 2006 it earned a spot on the National Trust for Historic Preservation list of Distinctive Destinations, and in 2009 Palm Springs was designated as a Preserve America community.  For those of us who won’t be in the area for Palm Springs’ annual celebration of all things Mid-Century and Modern, we can always visit later.  We might miss out on all the excitement, but we can still take a look at all the wonderful architecture when we are in town.  The Palm Springs Visitor Center has maps highlighting the city’s Mid-Century landmarks.

For more information on the Palm Springs artist featured in today’s photo visit the Nat Reed Gallery.
