Local and state pandemic guidelines 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 Modernism Show & Sale at the Palm Springs Convention Center will be offered April 8 – 11, 2021. Tickets are on sale now at modernismweek.com.
