Get ready- August 1, 2016: Modernism Fall Preview tickets go on sale!
The fall preview, scheduled for Oct. 21-23, "is a wonderful opportunity for attendees to get a taste of what our 11-day festival in February will offer," said Lisa Vossler Smith, Modernism Week's executive director. Partner organizations collaborate to produce a “mini-Modernism Week” to kick-off the active social and recreational season in Palm Springs. Perennial favorites like the walking tours, architectural bus tours, tours of Palm Springs neighborhoods and iconic buildings, educational events (including lectures and film screenings), and a series of receptions celebrating all things modern will be included in the October program.
A Modernism Show & Sale will start off the weekend, with an opening night party and early buying preview reception planned at the Palm Springs Convention Center. Furniture, art, textiles and more will be available for purchase throughout the weekend.
Saturday's festivities include a special dedication on the Palm Springs Walk of Stars for local architectural historian Robert Imber, and a cocktail reception honoring Palm Springs architect E. Stewart Williams.
