February 18-21, 24-27: Visit to the Modernism Week showcase: Casa Tierra

Bobby Berk, interior designer, reality TV personality and author will be opening his latest project, An Idyllic Desert Escape, for the first time during Modernism Week. This hidden gem of an estate in Palm Desert provides the perfect oasis to get away from it all, yet just minutes from Palm Springs. With over 5,000 square feet of living space, this unique Spanish-style property has been transformed into a world-class destination, with modern touches and an emphasis on Bobby Berk’s unique design style. The design scheme reflects the colors and textures of the desert landscape and blends in perfectly with the exterior and the stunning setting of the hills. Home Tour guests will be transported to the property from a nearby location due to private roads.

February 21: Celebrate Black History Month with “Stories Untold: Black Modernists in Southern California”

Black designers, builders, and developers have helped shape Palm Springs and Southern California for over a century. This year, Modernism Week will honor these pioneers with a three-part symposium on their legacy. In Part 1, “The Black History of Palm Springs,” panelists Tyrone Beason (reporter for the Los Angeles Times) and Jarvis Crawford and Dieter Crawford (leaders of the Palm Springs Black History Committee) will share stories about historic Palm Springs landmarks. In the second part, “Circle of Paul R. Williams”, Gail Kennard (daughter of Robert Kennard) will discuss the role played by Paul R. Williams in inspiring other black designers (including Kennard, James Garrott, Ralph Vaughn and Arthur Silvers ) to launch careers in Los Angeles. In Part Three, “Destination Crenshaw,” Drake Dillard of Perkins & Will will present a 1.3-mile outdoor art gallery and park project that will run alongside the streetcar line in the Crenshaw District of Los Angeles.
