What’s shinny, mobile, and symbolic of the open road? The Vintage Airstream of course! And this year we’re bringing back this cult favorite exhibition for the closing weekend of Palm Springs Modernism Week, February 23-24th. Peek inside one-of-a-kind, renovated travel trailers and tour their groovy interiors, modular custom built furniture and retro finishes. Trailer owners will be on hand to talk history, restoration and adventures on the open road. This show will also feature a variety of retail booths with a fun mix of gifts, art, products, and services that relate to the Vintage Trailer lifestyle.

Preview: Welcome Aboard – The Pan Am Experience

As hundreds of people get ready to hit the airports on their way home for the holidays, we thought we’d reminisce a bit about the good old days of ‘Jet Age’ of travel when passengers enjoyed real silverware, fine dining, and immaculately styled stewardesses delivering deliciously strong Clipper cocktails.  Ah, don’t we miss Pan Am?

#MODERNISMPROJECT > CHALLENGE NO. 3 > WANDERLUST > SPECIAL GUEST JUDGE JASON HUDSON

Thanks to all those who participated in our last two #ModernismProject challenges. We’ve been getting fantastic submissions, and our judges have been loving them too. As promised, here’s another chance to win tickets to Palm Springs Modernism Week. For those of you who are new around here, the #ModernismProject is our first-ever mobile initiative encouraging the global community of modernism fans to express visually what modernism means to them. This week’s theme is…..#WANDERLUST.

The middle part of the last century marks a time in history when many Americans began to enjoy the luxury of travel. Owning one or two family cars was common, Disneyland was the newest dream family vacation, and Palm Springs emerged as a premier travel and leisure destination in America. We at Palm Springs Modernism Week would like to know what imagery makes you nostalgic for travel during that time period. From vintage suitcases, travel posters, cars and cameras, to Mid-Century Modern beach houses and airstream trailers, the possibilities are endless! Get as creative as you’d like.

Our special guest judge for this challenge is Jason Hudson – a wanderlust himself who loves traveling to his country cottage in Canada, and his condo in Florida. More importantly, he’s a talented Toronto-based commercial photographer, supercharged ‘Grammer (that’s Instagram user) extraordinaire, and our third #ModernismProject guest judge. If you aren’t following him already, you should right here! He has a great eye for shooting interiors and beautifully delicious food.

Twice a month (between now and February), we’ll be issuing a new “challenge” or prompt. Participants are encouraged to submit as many photos as they’d like. An amazing panel of special guest judges will review all the submissions and pick a lucky winner in each category. The winner of this week’s challenge will receive a pair of tickets to the Modernism Week Home Tour on February 17, 2013!
