The Mod Squad is a group of inspiring (and modernist-loving) creatives, tasked with the mission of capturing Modernism Week through their eyes. 

Each year, we look forward to discovering Modernism Week through the eyes of our Mod Squad. The diverse and dynamic mix of creatives always lend a unique, behind-the-scenes look at the hundreds of events in February, and we’re especially excited to see how they experience all the modernist fun in 2018!

In the weeks leading up to Modernism Week, you’ll get to know a different Mod Squad member with a fun Modernism Week Instagram Takeover, as they share what modernism means to them. But first, let us introduce you to:

Read on to meet our final Instagram Takeover guests!

February 13 Instagram Takeover: Taylor, Elizabeth, and Elaine of Local Wanderer (@localwanderer)

If you don’t know about Local Wanderer, well…we dare you to scroll through their wanderlust-inducing Instagram feed without immediately buying a plane ticket to some far-off wonderland. The inspiring travel blog features city guides, travel tips, and an appreciation for “localism, not tourism.” The trio are no strangers to Palm Springs, and we’re proud to welcome them back to the desert for this year’s celebration of midcentury architecture, design, and culture.

Follow along at @localwanderer, @modernism_week, and #PSModSquad to discover what modernism means to them. Click through the gallery above to see previous Instagram Takeovers from our 2018 Mod Squad.
