Exhibition: Hugh Kaptur: Organic Desert Architecture at the Palm Springs Art Museum

Hugh Kaptur: Organic Desert Architecture
February 2-June 17, 2019
Architecture and Design Center

Hugh Kaptur is a visionary designer who practiced in Palm Springs and the surrounding Coachella Valley area from the late 1950s through the early 2000s. With more than 200 built projects in the area — residential, commercial, and institutional — he played a significant role in the architectural development of Palm Springs.

Through architectural drawings, models, sketches, period photographs, and ephemera from the Kaptur archive, along with new photography of select projects, the exhibition will show the range and importance of Kaptur’s practice and will place him in the context of his Desert Modern peers. A small illustrated brochure, lectures and architecture tours will complement the exhibition.

Hugh Kaptur: Organic Desert Architecture is organized by Brooke Hodge, Director of Architecture and Design, and Frank D. Lopez, Archivist/Librarian.
