Palm Springs, CA (PRWEB) February 07, 2014
The first Desert Contemporary Home Tour will be held on Saturday, February 15th, in conjunction with the Palm Springs Fine Art Fair. The tour is the first cooperative event in 2014 between premier home tour organizer, Modern Home Tours, and the Hamptons Expo Group, producers of the nation’s leading contemporary art fairs.
The Desert Contemporary Home Tour will highlight the intersection between contemporary art and the area’s most unique and contemporary and modern dwellings. At each stop, tour-goers will have the rare opportunity to explore the inside and out of some of Palm Springs’ most contemporary homes. In addition, the Desert Contemporary Home Tour will feature a first: a restaurant. During the self-driven tour, visit and explore the modern LuLu California Bistro in downtown Palm Springs, and grab a bite to eat with a special tour discount. It’s a day of neighborhood exploration and visual awe in Palm Springs.
“Being able to partner with world-class art promoters like the Hamptons Expo Group is a tremendous opportunity,” James Leasure, co-founder of Modern Home Tours, LLC, says. “Modern home design is living art, and we know both architecture enthusiasts and patrons of contemporary art will enjoy another medium for experiencing the cutting edge of lifestyle and creativity.”
Participating stops on the Desert Contemporary Home Tour will be open for viewing from 11:00 am – 4:00 pm on Saturday, February 15th, in and around the Palm Springs area. The final stop of the home tour will be the Fine Art Fair’s VIP Lounge for a catered “Meet & Greet” Reception. Combination tickets to attend the Desert Contemporary Home Tour on Saturday and Palm Springs Fine Art Fair throughout the weekend are available at a discounted price.
The Desert Contemporary Home Tour has also named the Desert AIDS Project as the tour’s local non-profit partner. Volunteers from the Desert AIDS Project will help staff the event and receive a portion of the tour’s proceeds. Visit http://www.desertaidsproject.org for more information on the Project’s mission.
