Palm Springs CA (PRWEB) December 16, 2013
This year’s dynamic program includes the rarely seen Grace Miller residence, Richard Neutra, 1937; the original Donald Wexler family home designed by the architect in 1955; the Palm Springs Glass House, William Cody, 1967; and the Edris House, E. Stewart Williams, 1953. PS ModCom’s Iconic Tours offer the general public a rare opportunity to view the work of the architects who have put Palm Springs on the “must see” map of midcentury modern architecture.
Along with the tours, PS ModCom’s Annual Gala benefit will celebrate “A Night at the Casbah” at the magnificent hillside Bougain Villa estate. Originally designed by local architect Hugh Kaptur in 1958, the villa underwent significant expansion by Albert Frey becoming the magnificent glass and mirrored floating pavilion we see today. Floating high above the City of Palm Springs, the villa is accessed by private buses, which will caravan guests to an authentic Moroccan evening under the stars.
All events have a limited number of tickets. To avoid disappointment, purchase tickets now.For information about the tours or gala, visit http://www.psmodcom.org or contact Executive Director, Nickie McLaughlin at Nickie(at)psmodcom(dot)org
