Modernism week – palm springs, ca

18 Jan

If you are into Mid Century Modern furniture you may want to check this out. I understand a number of Tulsans will be in attendance so I thought I’d share.

The 8th Annual Palm Springs Modernism Show & Sale, benefiting the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation, will be held February 15-17, 2008 at the Palm Springs Convention Center.

modernism_week.bmpA wide range of vintage 20th Century furniture, decorative and fine arts will be presented and sold by 75 exhibitors, many from the West Coast, but some who come from as far away as New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Detroit, Dallas, Denver, and Miami. High quality mid-Century furniture is a favorite of many dealers and collectors, but the show also includes an excellent representation of all design movements of the 20th Century from 1900 to 1970s.

An opening party and early-buying opportunity will be held on Friday evening, February 15, from 6 – 9 p.m. to benefit the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation. Preview tickets are $50 per person in advance, and $60 at the door, and are available by calling (760) 837-7117 or The preview gala will feature booksignings by celebrity modernism authors, as well as appetizers, full bar, and entertainment.

The weekend show hours are Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Palm Springs Convention Center is located at 277 N. Avenida Caballeros, Palm Springs, CA 92262. Show admission is $15 per person for Saturday & Sunday; good for return entry all weekend.

The Modernism Show weekend has evolved into a full ten days of events that are sure to capture the attention of modern enthusiasts. Modernism Week will offer a variety of special events, including Palm Springs Walk of Fame dedication to architect Donald Wexler, annual benefit party for Palm Springs Modern Committee, Frey House II tours by the Palm Springs Art Museum, classic car show, vintage fashion show, double-decker bus architectural tours, and a retro martini party.

    And it would be awesome if Tulsa had a Modernism show some day!

    If there is anything I can do to help, please let me know.
    My connections are limited, but I have a few friends in the business (Mark Meyer of designSTUDIO in Austin and a few others) and I am an excellent cheerleader.
    I also have a few blogs which I will be happy to use to promote any ModernTulsa activities, just let me know. I am a strong believer in the potential of the mcm and modern community here and I would love to help if there is anything I can do.
