Modernism Week Pool 2021

Modernism Week is tentatively planning a variety of new and favorite events as both in-person and online programs for 2021. In-person events will likely include architectural walking tours, home tours, garden and driving tours, and more. All ‘live’ events will follow established public health protocols and observe social distancing.

Much of the Modernism Week programming in February will be offered as online events. Approximately 20-30 specially created video programs will provide free and low-cost streaming educational and entertainment experiences. The programs will include presentations by noted architects, designers and historians who are experts in their fields. The educational and entertaining programs will cover topics ranging from historic building restoration and preservation to adaptive reuse and the development of affordable housing. These online programs will allow viewers to participate remotely from home and to safely share the online experiences with their families.

Modernism Week remains committed to its mission of celebrating and fostering appreciation of midcentury architecture and design and sharing free and low-cost educational opportunities with the public. These programs help preserve and beautify neighborhoods and communities throughout the Coachella Valley and provide education worldwide.

Tickets for in-person events will be available at beginning at noon (PST) on Friday, January 1, 2021. On-line programs will go on sale Monday, February 1, 2021 at noon PST.
