VIDEO: Listen to St. Theresa Catholic School student Ava Hemstreet explain her architectural project.
Those who missed viewing Modernism Week’s extraordinary St. Theresa Catholic School Student Project will have a final opportunity to see them at an open house from 6-7:30 p.m. April 16 at the Palm Springs school.
The sixth grade class will exhibit their exceptional models of significant Palm Springs Modern architecture alongside artworks by the seventh grade deriving from iconic modern architecture of Palm Springs and throughout the world. New at the open house will be the eighth grade class power point presentations focused on midcentury modern architecture with emphasis on architect William F. Cody, who designed a part of the school in 1968.
A St. Therea Cathlic School student displays her work to Robert Imber from the Palm Springs Modern Committee.
Attendance is free to the public. Refreshments will be prepared and served by the students.
The St. Theresa Student Projects were supported by a partnership with Palm Springs Modern Committee, whose Education Committee provided in-class curriculum and arranged for a donation of educational tools on the topic of Modernism including books, DVDs, maps, and a Palm Springs architectural mobile app.
The Palm Springs Modern Committee (PS ModCom) is a non-profit dedicated to the appreciation and preservation of Desert Modern architecture and design. We accomplish this through education, advocacy for threatened building, promotion of heritage tourism, and the celebration of successes in preservation and adaptive reuse.
