It also includes the popular Palm Springs Modernism Show & Sale Fall Edition, which includes an opening night preview party Oct. 20 and offers attendees a cocktail reception, live music, and an exclusive first chance to shop at the show before it opens to the public. The Show & Sale continues Oct. 21-22 and will feature more than 40 premier national and international decorative and fine arts dealers
The Premier Double Decker Architectural Bus Tour gives Modernism Week Fall Preview fans a comprehensive historical overview.
The Fall Preview will also feature multiple newly created home and neighborhood tours, including expansions into locations in Palm Desert, Indian Wells, and Rancho Mirage. Also scheduled for the Fall Preview are tours of the Kirk Douglas residence and the Frank Sinatra Estate. The popular fall event also gives a sampling of the events coming up for Modernism Week in February, 2018.
