The Guide: Everything You Need to Know About Modernism Week 2013

TheGuide_LogoModernism Week features eleven days and ten nights of cocktail parties, exhibitions, lectures, films, expos, home tours, and much more.  In other words, there is a lot to see.  Lest our guests get lost at this veritable Woodstock-in-the-Desert for fans of modernist design, we’ve created The Guide, a handy dandy outline of events with links to where to buy tickets.

Basically, The Guide is meant to help guests who have already purchased tickets figure out what else they might want to see while in Palm Springs, and give guests without tickets a chance to see what they still have time to sign up for!  While many of the popular events have already sold out, there are tons of lectures, design showcases and expos, and gallery receptions that have available spots.

Modernism Week Home Tour OneWe’ll continue to update The Guide as new events are added.  Look for an updated round-up of cocktail parties in the coming weeks.
