The schedule for Modernism Week (April 8-18, 2021) is now available to preview online!
This year’s exciting array of in-person events offered during Modernism Week include home tours, the Palm Springs Modernism Show & Sale and Modern Design Expo, walking architectural tours, an outdoor garden tour, talks, and other programs specifically designed to allow for social distancing and safety protocols. In addition to on-site events in April, newly created online programs will also be available on the Modernism Week website running simultaneously with the festival. All in-person tours and events are available for previewing on the website until December 31. Tickets for these events will be available for purchase on January 1 at 12 p.m. PST at modernismweek.com.
Local and state requirements for gatherings and social distancing prompted Modernism Week to offer two versions of its popular event – the February Modernism Week Online Experience (Feb. 1 – 28, 2021) and an additional festival featuring in-person events running from April 8-18, 2021. The popular Modernism Show & Sale at the Palm Springs Convention Center will be offered April 8-11, 2021. Tickets for the February Modernism Week Online Experience (an all-online array of more than 20 video programs) will be available for purchase and on-demand streaming February 1-28, 2021. An exciting online architecture and design auction developed by Modernism Week will accompany the online programs from February 1-15, 2021.
The new April Modernism Week will feature many new and popular returning in-person events. These programs will include two newly-remodeled designer Featured Homes that will be open for timed, ticketed, socially distanced tours, and the Palm Springs Modernism Show & Sale, which will be organized to allow for social distancing and timed entry. Other April events will include a variety of outdoor walking tours; narrated self-driving tours of Palm Springs architecture; self-guided modern landscape and outdoor neighborhood tours in Palm Springs, Rancho Mirage and Indian Wells; tours of Sunnylands and the Lautner Compound; fashion events; a vintage automobile exhibition; and tours of two architecturally significant private homes in Desert Palisades. All events are designed to accommodate social distancing and safety protocols.
