Join Modernism Week for a series of five lively discussion panels at CAMP, drawing on local speakers from the fields of real estate, design, architecture, building and home ownership, addressing issues related to the evaluation, buying, renovating and updating of a historic home.
Attend one or all sessions, learn from the real-life experience of specialists and debunk the myths of reality design shows.
CAMP is located on North Palm Canyon Drive in Palm Springs, just north of Alejo across the street from the Palm Canyon Theatre.
Presented by Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery, each session will offer plenty of time for Q&A with experts in the field, who have drawn their own renovation insights from multiple projects, start to finish.
