If you needed another reason to come to Palm Springs, this fall from October 21-23 will hold the Modernism Week Fall Preview.  February is when you can find Modernism Week in Palm Springs, but the fall preview promises to be packed with some amazing things to do.

Modern Home Tours

Along with many other tours of modernist homes including Frank Sinatra's, you'll be able to tour Christopher Kennedy's home, which is credited with starting the 'New Generation of Desert Modern'.  

Modern Lectures

The cocktail party and lecture series 'Modernism with a Twist' has become increasingly popular.  Bring together cocktails and six 10-minute lectures with titles like "Why do we love mid-century modern architecture yet mock mid-century modern cuisine?" or "An amusing review of Modernism marketing campaigns: You can clean your toilet while wearing pearls!" and you have the makings of a fun and enlightening event.

On a more serious note, the Palm Springs Women's Club will host lectures including 'Lost, Saved, and Endangered', which looks at preservation with architectural expert Gary Johns, and much more.

Walk of Stars for Robert Imber

Robert Imber was the founder of Palm Springs Modern Tours.  He loved sharing his knowledge of modern architecture in Palm Springs, and this resulted in many people actually moving to Palm Springs and falling in love with Desert Modern.  Be there for the Walk of Stars dedication for him on October 22.

There are so many events happening during the Modernism Week Fall Preview in Palm Springs that we can't include it all. If you are a fan of modern design, this is the weekend you want to come to Palm Springs!
