Palm Springs Modernism Project Photo Challenge

Palm Springs has long been on my bucket list. That mid century cool vibe so appeals to me as I picture Slim Aarons photographing parties by the pool with caftans and cocktails. I think 2013 is the year.  What fun would it be to attend Palm Springs Modernism Week?

Here is our chance…

If you're not already familiar with it,  Modernism Week ( is an 11-day celebration of mid-century modern architecture, culture, and design that takes place in Palm Springs every spring.  We like to think of it as Woodstock for fans of modernism. Costumes and period-garb definitely abound at the poolside cocktail parties!  With home tours, architectural bus tours, garden tours, lectures, exhibitions, parties, and even a few dinner shows, and more, Modernism Week 2013 promises to be even bigger and better than last year.  

The Rules Are Simple:
To participate,  people can submit as many photos as they want.  We just ask them to:
  • Follow @modernism_week on Instagram
  • Tag their photos #ModernismProject and #abode when they submit them
The Prize is Awesome:
The winner receives two tickets to the 13th Annual Modernism Week Show Preview Reception on February 15, 2013 (a value of $150). More info here.
