Event Details

  • The Palm Springs Art Museum presents an On Line Exhibition – Hugh Kaptur.
  • Hugh Michael Kaptur (b. 1931) moved to Palm Springs in 1956 and established his practice, first as a building designer, then later as a licensed architect. He continues an active architectural practice today. His early projects were executed in steel post-and-beam construction and were rectilinear in form, but he later developed his unique signature style.

    Kaptur’s inspiration comes from American Southwest indigenous dwellings, desert architecture, and Frank Lloyd Wright’s Taliesin West. His use of abstract geometric form has produced buildings that are sculptural in spirit and have an organic, bold modern aesthetic. Many of his projects are recognizable for their thick blank whitewashed walls, inset windows with protruding surrounds, and wide overhangs to protect the structures from absorbing the intense desert heat.
